Minna - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Niger State has filed a suit against Governor Abubakar Bello seeking to bar him from constituting local government Transition Implementation Committee (TIC) in the state, reports National Mirror.

The state PDP Chairman, Honourable Musa Maali expressed dismay over the postponement despite the assurance from the State Independent National Electoral Commission (SIEC) that the November 7 date was sacrosanct.

Maali urged party supporters to work hard for the success of the party in all the 25 local government areas.
