The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirants in Kogi and Bayelsa elections have all scaled the party’s screening exercise ahead of the September 3 primaries in both states.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, while speaking during the issuance of certificates to aspirants, assured the aspirants that the party will be neutral, adding that there is no preferred candidate.
Secondus advised the aspirants not to rely on any party leader, not even members of the National Working Committee (NWC), to get the party’s ticket.
Instead, the National Chairman said, “Go and work on the delegates. They are the ones that will elect you as candidate, no one else, not even members of the NWC.
“All I can assure you is that we are going to conduct free, fair and transparent primaries in Kogi and Bayelsa States,” Secondus assured.
In Bayelsa State, 21 aspirants, including the deputy governor, John Jonah, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Kemela Okara, former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Timi Alaibe, former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Power, Ambassador Godknows Igali and Senator Douye Diri, were also cleared for the primary.
Former Governor Idris Wada, Senator Dino Melaye and Abubakar Ibrahim, son of former Governor Ibrahim Idris, were among the 13 aspirants cleared to contest the Kogi PDP primary.
