- PDP members have been asked not to show up at the venue of the governorship primary in Akure
- According to the party, the exercise is only for delegates
- Meanwhile, delegates have been warned not to wear any campaign materials
As Ondo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) holds governorship primary on Wednesday, July 22, non-party delegates have been asked to stay away from the venue.
According to PDP, only delegates, aspirants agents, journalists and security personnel would be allowed into the venue of the primary.
This was disclosed in a statement by the caretaker chairman of the party, Engr. Clement Faboyede.
Going further, the party warned delegates not to wear any campaign materials to the venue.
Going further, the party said there must be no loitering or gathering around the venue.
He added that all delegates must come with their INEC Permanent Voters Card (PVC).
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that as the plot to impeach the deputy governor of Ondo state Ajayi Agboola, thickens, it appears he has also not found a comfortable political home in the PDP.
Some chieftains of the PDP want the deputy governor to be disqualified from participating in the governorship primary.
The PDP leaders accused Ajayi of conniving with Kingsley Chinda who served as the secretary of the party's ward congresses electoral committee to manipulate the delegates list for the primary election.
They alleged that over 101 fake delegates were smuggled into the adhoc delegates’ list of the PDP.
Speaking on behalf of the chieftains, Bitire Solomon alleged that the list being paraded by the party would be rejected before the primary.
Bitire insisted that Ajayi must be disqualified for fraudulently injecting 101 fake delegates into the Adhoc delegates list of Ondo State PDP in collusion with Chinda.
He also called for the immediate arrest of Chinda.
The deputy governor's spokesperson, Babatope Okeowo, has, however, dismissed the allegations. He said it was unfair to call for the disqualification of his boss who has refused to join issues with other PDP aspirants.
