The PDP aspirants for the Local Government election in Ebonyi State have condemned in its entirety the postponement of LG elections by EBSIEC from August 15th to August 29th.
The State Party Chairman, Barr. Onyekachi Nwebonyi at the stakeholder meeting at the Party Secretariat in Abakaliki said the party was not happy with what they are seeing adding that some of their party loyalists were behind that.
The Chairman expressed dissatisfaction over the development, however he said being a law abiding party they have no option than to abide by the decision of the court as being directed to them by EBSIEC
He announced that the party will revisit her primaries and maintained that they will put their house in order to ensure that they participate validly in the fourth coming local government elections.
“PDP is a law abiding party and we believe in the rule of law, we are not happy with the development but being a law abiding party, we have no option than to abide by the decision of the court and as directed to us by EBSIEC.
“We shall revisit our primaries and we shall put our house in order to make sure we validly participate in the forthcoming Local Government Election in Ebonyi state.
“We’ve reached so many decisions like I said, we will be going into primaries again and we will also advertise sales of forms. So anybody who was not privileged to participate in our primaries previously is at liberty to buy form now to participate in the election.” The Chairman reiterated.
In their respective opinions, the National Vice Chairman of the party, Chief Austin Umahi, Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. David Umahi and the Speaker of the state house, Hon. Francis Nwifuru maintained that there is no gain in making a case, rather the party should do well to conform to the adjustment so far made by EBSIEC.
