The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has postponed the party’s governorship primaries in Lagos, Imo and Kano state indefinitely.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made this known in a statement on Saturday.
The opposition party, however, said the primary elections will take place on Sunday in others states apart from Lagos, Imo and Kano state.
Ologbondiyan explained in the statement that the governorship primaries in those states have been shifted indefinitely and a new date or dates will be announced soon.
The statement reads in part: “The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has just been drawn to rumour making the rounds that the PDP scheduled gubernatorial primary has been postponed.
“The PDP wishes to inform all delegates, members of our great party and aspirants for the gubernatorial election that the scheduled date for the primary remains Sunday, September 30, 2018.
“However, the gubernatorial primary election dates for Lagos, Kano and Imo states would be announced soon.
The PDP spokesman concluded by charging the general public and party members to disregard any information to the contrary.
