The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has extended the date for the sales of nomination and expression of interest forms for aspirants aspiring for elective positions in the 2015 general elections by one week.

The party's National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh told journalists at the party's secretariat in Abuja that the new expiration date for the sales of forms is now Thursday the November 6, 2014.

Metuh explained that the decision was taken at the 388th meeting of the National Working Committee of the party.

The NWC, according to him, also observed that the tenure of ward executive officers of PDP in Abia State has expired and therefore directed the Abia State executive of the party to oversee the ward congresses to be held on Saturday.

In the words of Metuh: 'In Anambra, the NWC noted that the tenure of the executive has expired on October 24 and directed the South East Zonal Working Committee to oversee the affairs of the party until another congress is held.'

However in the case of Imo State chapter of the party, where the tenure of the state executive expires on Friday, the NWC approved that the Exco should continue in office as caretaker committee but without voting right.

Metuh further pointed out that following the earlier resignation of the chairmen of Enugu and Delta State chapters of the PDP, the NWC directed the deputy chairmen of the chapters to immediately take over the affairs of the party in their respective states.

He equally added said the agreement reached with the governorship aspirants from Adamawa State with the national leadership still subsists and directed aspirants from the state to exchange the forms with 2015 governorship forms without any payment.

He restated that the 2015 governorship of the state has been zoned to Adamawa Central Senatorial District.
