The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is set to approve the guidelines for aspirants seeking political offices on its ticket on Wednesday.
The draft guidelines, according to senior party officials, would be deliberated on at the Wednesday’s National Working Committee, NWC, meeting before final approval is given by the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party which is expected to meet at an emergency session on the issue.
The national leadership of the PDP at its last week’s NWC meeting held at the Presidential Campaign Office, Legacy House, Maitama could not discuss the issue of party guidelines because a quorum was not formed and in particular, the National Organizing Secretary, Prince Uche Secondus whose office is responsible for that was not available.
According to two members of the NWC who spoke with Vanguard, preparations were in top gear for the congresses, against the backdrop that the party, before the postponement by INEC, had come up with its guidelines.
According to the NWC members, ‘’we are set and we are going to meet on Wednesday where the issue of guidelines will be brought up for discussions and the dates will then be released thereafter for ratification by NEC at its emergency meeting that will come soon. What will only take place is amendment of the one we had earlier released during the sale of forms for elective positions.”
