1 500 delegates for Osun PDP governorship primaries

01 April 2014, 14:20

Osogbo - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun said on Monday in Osogbo that about 1 500 delegates would participate in its Saturday’s governorship primary.

Bola Ajao, the publicity secretary of the PDP, stated this in an interview.

The PDP fixed April 2 for its ward delegates election which would produce three delegates from each ward that would take part in the April 5 primary.

The delegates that emerge victorious will be the ones to be accredited for the April 5 governorship primary.

The 332 wards in Osun will produce 996 ward delegates.

"Apart from the 996 delegates that will emerge on Thursday, there will be other delegates categorised as statutory delegates.

"These statutory delegates are drawn from the state executive, local executive, state working committee and former house of assembly members.

"Other statutory delegates include, former local government chairmen and their deputies and members of board of trustees,’’ Ajao said.

He said apart from those who would be duly accredited for the primary, there would be no room for loitering.

"We have put in place committees to oversee venue, security and welfare to ensure a hitch- free primary,’’ the publicity secretary said.

Ajao said the party had booked a hotel in Osogbo for the governorship primary.

"The outing on Saturday will go a long way in showing the world that democracy must be allowed to play itself out,’’ he said.

The four aspirants that are to contest at the Osun PDP primary are Iyiola Omisore, Olasunkanmi Akinlabi, Adetunji Adeleke and Wole Oke.
