The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed insinuations that it’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus, was interfering in the Bayelsa primary election fixed for September 3rd.
Naija News reports that the South-south Youth Vanguard PDP has warned Secondus not to interfere in the Bayelsa Governorship primaries.
The chairman of the group, James Akpofure, urged Uche Secondus to play a fatherly role in the governorship primaries rather than teaming up with Governor Seriake Dickson to allegedly manipulate the process.
Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that the party is yet to take a position on the process for the primaries.
“It is totally unfair and misplaced for anybody or group of people to allege that the party has taken a position,” he said.
The PDP spokesperson said that the party had constituted committees to go and conduct three ad hoc delegates elections.
“I can clearly say that the governors who chaired those teams, to the best of their abilities, were wonderful in their performance and such other processes will follow,” he said.
