“Professor Duke-Abiola’s refusal to collect the forms suggests an ulterior motive. Other aspirants including Dr. Ghalil Tafawa Balewa and President Goodluck Jonathan collected their forms on October 30th 2014 and November 6th 2014 respectively,” National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh said in a statement issued in Abuja.
The party expressed surprise that Professor Duke-Abiola, chose to go to court instead of taking advantage of the extension.
“The aspirant still has until the end of Friday to collect her form and failure to do so PDP will have no option than to consider her as not being interested in the contest, but out to cause confusion and foment trouble in the party.”
