PDP postpones guber primary in Lagos, Kano, Imo




The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has postponed its governorship primary election in Lagos, Imo and Kano states.

Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, announced this in a statement on Saturday.

The party’s primary election was due to hold on Sunday.

But Ologbondiyan said while those of Lagos, Kano and Imo have been postponed, the exercise would go on as planned in other states.

The statement read: “The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has just been drawn to rumour making the rounds that the PDP scheduled gubernatorial primary has been postponed.

“The PDP wishes to inform all delegates, members of our great party and aspirants for the gubernatorial election that the scheduled date for the primary remains Sunday, September 30, 2018.

“The rumour about the postponement should therefore be disregarded completely. However, the gubernatorial primary election dates for Lagos, Kano and Imo states would be announced soon.”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) had earlier postponed its governorship primary election in Lagos and Imo as well.
