The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has received series of serious phone calls and petitions regarding the processes of the primary it ordered for Ondo governorship election, which was held in Ibadan this morning.
While the result from the exercise is at best tentative, until approved by the NWC, the NWC wishes to assure all aspirants, stakeholders, members and teeming supporters of the party in the state that it will comprehensively review the processes and circumstances of the exercise accordingly.
This decision is as a result of serious reports claiming that proper accreditation was not done for the exercise.
The review therefore will enable the NWC take an informed decision on whether to conduct a fresh primary or uphold the result from today’s (August 29th 2016) exercise.
The NWC notes that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has given political parties up to September 19thto conduct primaries for the Ondo governorship election.
Finally, the National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff assures all aspirants, members and supporters of our great party in Ondo and across the nation that the NWC will come out with the best possible position on this matter.
