PDP warns violators as it cancels candidates’ endorsements

10 October 2014, 10:26

Abuja - The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), which has cancelled the endorsement of candidates by state chapters of the party, issued a warning to members that violated the process.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the party National Secretary of the party, Professor Wale Oladipo.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) at a meeting on Thursday noted that some elected officers of our great Party at the state level have continued to engage in processes aimed at endorsing candidates for the 2015 general elections despite warnings from the national leadership that they, as unbiased umpires should not involve in such,” Oladipo said.

He added that the National Working Committee (NWC) strongly frowned at this development and issues this as a final warning to all elected party officials and chapters at all levels, and shall not hesitate to sanction such erring officers or chapters.

“The sanctity of our nomination processes must be protected at all times. We therefore wish to assure all party members that there shall be a level playing ground for all aspirants intending to participate in the nomination processes.”

Oladipo said the NWC would not hesitate to protect any of its members who in any way stood to be shortchanged, cheated or victimized by such endorsements.

“The NWC charges all our members and supporters therefore to disregard all such endorsements as the PDP will conduct primaries to duly elect our flag bearers in line with the provisions of the Electoral Act and the constitution of our great party.”
