The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reportedly postponed its presidential primaries and others ahead of the 2023 general elections.

It was gathered that the primaries for aspirants contesting for Houses of Assembly which were earlier scheduled to hold today have been shifted.

The main opposition party has also shifted primary elections for other positions.

Meanwhile, the PDP is yet to announce the new date for the commencement of the primaries.

An official of the party who spoke with The Guardian disclosed that a meeting was fixed for 9:00 pm on Friday to decide the new dates.

In another development, a former Transportation Minister, Ebenezer Babatope has revealed how the PDP can take over power from the All Progressives Congress in the 2023 presidential election.

Speaking ahead of PDP’s May 28 presidential primary election, the party chieftain warned against actions capable of truncating its chances in 2023.

Babatope urged party stakeholders and aspirants to ensure that the presidential primary is fair and credible.

The former minister in a statement handed to newsmen on Thursday said PDP’s primary must be such that would lead to the emergence of the best candidate as the flagbearer.
