Adamawa PDP ward congress holds
The People Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State yesterday conducted the ward congresses to elect delegates for the party’s governorship primary billed for Saturday. A total of 226 delegates from the 21 local government councils were expected to be elected. The result was still being collated last night.
One of the aspirants and former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Dr. Idi Aliyu Hong, last night expressed satisfaction with the congress. He said: “The congress was conducted by the national committee for the congress in collaboration with the local organising committee. It started on Monday when the local organising committee sent out party officials to different local governments outside their local government areas to conduct the primaries. Before then, they committee had called all the aspirants to explain the logistics and procedure for the conduct of the primaries and we all agreed with it. So far, it has been free, fair and transparent. As a former secretary of PDP in the state and an aspirant, I am very satisfied with the conduct of the ward congresses. The results are being collated, and from the reports we are receiving, about 90 per cent of the results has so far come in.”
Asked why the result took so long to collate, Hong explained that the council areas were far apart and the committee had to wait for the party officials to return to Yola.
