The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has once again, adjusted its timetable and schedule of activities, as well as extending the sale of its nomination forms for elective positions for the 2023 general elections.
The adjustment was disclosed in a statement on Thursday by the National Publicity Secretary of the main opposition party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, who noted that the move was as a result of considerations of various issues and concerns that would not be favourable for the party.
