Tight Security As Ekiti PDP Governorship Primary Commences



pdp flags

There was heavy security beef up on Tuesday at the popular Uncle Eagle Hall Event Centre in Ado-Ekiti as  the Ekiti PDP governorship primary got underway with the accreditation process.

A  News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  correspondent at the venue reports that armed  combined teams of policemen as well as Department of State Services and  Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps  personnel  have taken over  the expansive event centre located on the  Ado-Ikere road where the exercise is ongoing.

The Publicity Secretary of the PDP  in the state, Jackson Adebayo, had said the  tight security was   to prevent  breakdown of law and order.

NAN recalls that the APC primary held on Saturday in the Ekiti capital was marred by violence, leading to the suspension of the exercise.

NAN also  reports that accreditation for  the 2,092 delegates cutting across 177 wards,  who are eligible to participate in Tuesday’s  PDP primary,  began at about 11:30 am after it was delayed by a downpour with Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta leading the congress committee.

Those vying to fly the party’s flag in the July 14 governorship election are current  Deputy Governor, Prof.  Kolapo Olusola, a former Minister of Works, Mr  Dayo Adeyeye,  and  Senate Deputy Minority Whip, Biodun Olujimi. (NAN)
