Only national leadership can publish PDP primaries' results -Metuh

By The Citizen

The National leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has said that only its national leaders are permitted to release results of its ward congresses and other primary elections across the country.

The party's National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olisa Metuh,  gave the clarification in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

According to him, some individuals have purportedly released the result of the election of three-man ad-hoc delegates for the party's primary elections in Ebonyi, held on Nov. 1.

He frowned at the development, adding that the party's leadership would thoroughly investigate the illegality and take prompt action against persons who participated in it.

The committee, he said, should elect a new chairman for the party's state chapter. NAN
