Confusion As Lagos PDP Calls For Cancellation Of Primaries

The Lagos State chapter of the PDP has urged the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to cancel the House of Assembly and House of Representatives primaries slated for Sunday in Lagos.
The PDP Chairman in Lagos state, Philips Aivoji, addressing a news conference alongside other state executives of the party, governorship aspirants and party leaders in Ikeja, said the ad hoc delegates list brought by the electoral committees for both primaries had been compromised.

Mr Aivoji said: “The entire state executive committee of the Lagos state PDP and five of the six Gubernatorial aspirants, reject in its entirety, the Ad-Hoc delegate list brought by the electoral committee to Lagos state for the purpose of conducting the primaries.

“We are all shocked to see that the list does not reflect the authentic elected Ad-Hoc delegates as conducted by organs of the party at the ward level and supervised by the DSS and INEC.

“It is imperative to state that copies of the Ad-Hoc list that emanated from the state and submitted to INEC are completely different from the one brought by the committee for the purpose of the exercise.

“We realised that contrary to the provision of our great party and the electoral guidelines of the party, the election committee came to the state with list of venues and already chosen electoral officers.”
