The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Uche Secondus, has advised its members seeking the party’s ticket to contest for the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections against relying on the party’s leaders for the ticket.
He gave the advice on Tuesday in Abuja at the presentation of clearance certificates to the aspirants.
“Go and work on the delegates. They are the ones that will elect you as candidates; no one else, not even members of the NWC, can help you.
“All I can assure you is that we are going to conduct free, fair and transparent primaries in Kogi and Bayelsa States,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that certificates were issued to the cleared aspirants from the two states.
Among them were former Governor of Kogi, Idris Wada; Senator Dino Melaye; Abubakar Ibrahim; a son of former Governor Ibrahim Idris, and 10 others.
Those cleared for Bayelsa included the deputy governor, John Jona; the Secretary to the State Government, Kemela Okara; former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Timi Alaibe; Ambassador Godknows, Senator Douye Diri, and 16 others.
