Former Minister of Information, Professor Jerry Gana, at the weekend, assured that the forthcoming Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) convention will not be about “allocation of offices.” “This is not the time for allocation of offices in PDP.

The party needs the best capable hands to occupy the various offices zoned to us. Kola is one of the best hands we have around,” Gana said while addressing a group of young professionals who were in his residence to seek support for Kola Ologbondiyan in the race for the PDP’s national publicity secretary. According to him, “I have been a Minister of Information in the past. I know how difficult it is to navigate the terrain of Nigerian media. Kola had been a Special Adviser to our President of the Senate for eight years and did it well.

“I have taken serious note of your letter of intention and you are coming from people that I respect tremendously. This is not the time to go into details. Let me just say that I will do my best. “I will see the right people in the right places and I pray that God will guide us,” he further said.

Earlier, Ologbondiyan had told Prof Gana of his intention to contest the position of national publicity secretary assuring the party leader of his plans for the party which he said includes re-inventing the narratives of the party to address the hearts and minds of Nigerians as well as rebranding and repositioning the party to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
