President Goodluck Jonathan has affirmed that Vice President Namadi Sambo will remain his running mate for the 2015 presidential election.
The President spoke in his acceptance speech shortly after his emergence as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the election.
He described Sambo as a loyal and dependable deputy.
The convention held at the Eagle Square Abuja from Wednesday till the early hours of Thursday was a mere coronation for the President as he was the only candidate at the election having been adopted by the party as the sole presidential candidate.
Earlier before the election commenced last night, the convention had also ratified the election of former Bauchi State governor, Alhaji Adamu Mua’zu as chairman of the party.
He has been operating in that capacity for some time now.
