The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied any interference of the party’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus in the process of Bayelsa and Kogi primaries set for September 3rd.
The PDP cleared the air at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday, which was addressed by the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, after aggrieved members had made insinuations of Secondus‘ interference.
According to Ologbondiyan, the process for the primaries was still ongoing and the party had yet to take any position in both states.
He said “It is totally unfair and misplaced for anybody or group of people to allege that the party has taken a position,”
Ologbondiyan said that the party had constituted committees to conduct three ad hoc delegates elections in Bayelsa and Kogi.
“I can clearly say that the governors who chaired those teams, to the best of their abilities, were wonderful in their performance and such other processes will follow,” he said.
The PDP National Publcity Secretary also advised aggrieved aspirants or members to direct their complaints through the right channel.
“If there are grievances, aspirants and members should follow that rather than making frivolous allegations,” he said.
