“Most likely, it is going to happen on Thursday or Friday. We opted to move it forward because we have quite a lot of responses in the aspirants for the councillorship seats.

“We didn’t think we were going to have that many aspirants, but we have quite a lot. So, our screening procedure has been extended,” Doherty said.

The PDP chairman added that the party would field candidates from the chairmanship and councillorship seats across the 20 local government areas and the 37 local council development areas of the state.
