PDP exempts Kogi, Ondo, Edo from congress

17 April 2016, 17:00

Abuja - The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has exempted Kogi, Ondo and Edo states from the party’s forthcoming state congresses.

In a statement signed on Saturday in Abuja by Mr Olisa Metuh, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, the party said the decision was in view of its resolve to enthrone and sustain internal democracy.

The statement noted that the decision to exempt the affected states and consider other non-contentious states for the forthcoming congresses tallied with that of the National Executive Committee of the party.

``The NWC hereby announces that only three states, namely; Kogi, Ondo and Edo are exempted from the congresses.

``Accordingly, the remaining 33 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will be involved in elective congresses starting on Saturday, April 23, 2016,’’ it stated.

Similarly, the NWC also announced a new Caretaker Committee for PDP Yobe chapter.

The new caretaker committee has Alhaji Mohammed El-Yakub as its chairman and Alhaji Bello Jamaare as secretary.

Other members of the committee include, Alhaji Abba Tata, Malam Hassan Jaks, Mr Kachallah Hassan, Mr Mohammed Kadai, Alhaji Hassan Adamu and Mrs Zainab Haruna.
