PDP Nullifies Delegates Congress in Ebonyi Over INEC Officials’ Absence
By Abdulsalam Mahmud,
POLITICS DIGEST- The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has nullified the 3-man Ad-Hoc Delegate Congress ‘purportedly’ held in Ebonyi State, on Wednesday.
By law, the PDP, said that the exercise held today is null and void, and as such, unrecognized.
“This is because such Congresses are by law, subject to be monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which in this case, was not available to monitor the exercise,” it noted in a statement.
According to the statement signed by Debo Ologunagba, the Party’s National Publicity Secretary, the NWC rescheduled the conduct of the Ad-Hoc Delegates Congress in Ebonyi to Thursday, May 5, 2022.
This was based on the unavailability of INEC to monitor the exercise today, Wednesday, May 4, 2022, it stated.
PDP urged its members in Ebonyi to discountenance any exercise conducted on Wednesday May 4, 2022 as the Delegates Congress in Ebonyi State will duly hold on Thursday, May 5 2022.
