2019 Budget: Behave yourself, Buhari tells Lawmakers

Usman Mahdi Badeiri, who described himself as the valid chairman of PDP in Borno State announced the rejection of candidates produced by Zanna Mustapha-led faction.

Briefing newsmen yesterday in Maiduguri, Baderi explained that whereas judgments by Federal High Court and the Appeal Court recognising him as validly-elected chairman of PDP in the state are yet to be vacated by any court, a group he described as new entrants into PDP went ahead to conduct illegal primaries.
