He polled 2,812 ‘YES’ votes to get the needed support from the party in a result that was announced in the early hours of Thursday.

President Jonathan had earlier been chosen as the sole candidate of the party, a development that did not go down well with some members of the party who had the intention of vying for the ticket.

In his acceptance speech, President Jonathan accepted the nomination as the PDP presidential candidate, assuring his supporters and Nigerians  that he will not let them down.

He also announced Vice President Namadi Sambo as his running mate in the election, promising that the 2015 elections will hold in all the 36 states of the Federation.
