Abuja - Peter Obafemi is no longer eligible to contest in the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) Ekiti gubernatorial primary election after the party’s National Working Committee withdrew a provisional clearance it earlier gave him.
“By this, Peter Obafemi is not eligible to participate in the primary to elect the candidate of the PDP for the Ekiti governorship election,” Chief Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party stated in Abuja on Wednesday.
PDP earlier this week cleared 12 officials to contest the election.
The primary elections will be held on Saturday ahead of the gubernatorial election scheduled for June.
Metuh also disclosed that the National Working Committee of the party had approved the inauguration of a 16-man Caretaker Committee for Sokoto State with Abdullahi Muhammed, as Chairman and Musa Gusau as Secretary.
