According to the recent update, Goodluck Jonathan was confirmed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2015 polls.
Sahara Reporters provides that this is the result of the PDP primary election held December 10 at Eagle Square in Abuja.
TVC News Nigeria adds that the PDP also endorsed Adamu Mu’azu as National Chairman, with more than two-thirds of the 2,646 votes.

It would be recalled that more than 3,000 delegates attended the venue of the national convention to consider two major issues: ratification of Jonathan as the party’s sole candidate for 2015 and the confirmation of the appointment of Ahmadu Mu’azu as the party’s National Chairman.
GEJ was adopted PDP’s sole candidate September 18. The move triggered hot discussion both in the political circles and among the ordinary Nigerians. Some characterized such decision as “shameful” and “against the general interest of party men and women”.
It is worth mentioning that this move has already made history, as it has become the first time the PDP put up a single candidate prior to its presidential primaries.
