Edo: PDP NWC names 3-member Ward Congresses appeal panel

AS CentralNews predicted yesterday, the national headquarters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has weighed in the crisis rocking its Edo State chapter.
Its national working committee (NWC) has raised a three-member appeal panel to advise it on the rancorous ward congresses imbroglio seen in the state at the weekend.
In a statement, national organising secretary Umar Bature urges all concerned to accord the panel the necessary support and co-operation needed for the success of its assignment.
Nine out of 10 hustling for the party’s in governorship election coming up in September “congresses” were a sham.
Bature names former Bayelsa State governor Sen. Seriake Dickson chairman of the panel, with Hajiya Inna Ciroma (member) and Dr. Akilu Indabawa (secretary). Mrs. Godia Cephas Kwamblang is administrative secretary.
The statement reads in part, “The above named party members have been appointed by the NWC of PDP to serve on the WARD CONGRESSES APPEAL PANEL to consider appeals arising from the conduct of 3 Ad-Hoc Ward Congresses in Edo State.
“The appeal exercise is scheduled to hold on Wednesday February 7, 2024 at NWC Hall, Wadata Plaza, PDP National Headquarters, Wuse Zone 5, Abuja by 10 a.m.”
