PDP fixes dates for presidential, gov primaries
« on: September 18, 2014, 08:55:56 AM »

The Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday fixed October 29 and December 6 for its Governorship and Presidential Primaries respectively, ahead of the 2015 general elections.

This was announced by the party?s National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olisa Metuh, in Abuja.

The party spokesman also said that the primaries for the National Assembly would hold on November 22, adding that the dates were proposed by the party?s National Working Committee.

According to him, the dates were proposals that were subject to the approval of the party?s National Executive Committee scheduled to meet on September 18.

?We expect all public servants, government appointees and elected party officials who are interested in contesting any position to resign their appointments seven days before the commencement of the ward congress election,? he said.

NAN, however, learnt from the party?s national headquarters that sales of nomination and expression of interest forms for various elective offices would be between October 27 and 28.

This is to enable public office holders interested in elective offices to resign their appointments before October 20
