All the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirants in Kogi and Bayelsa elections scaled the party’s screening exercise ahead of the September 3 primaries in both states.

Speaking at the issuance of certificate to aspirants, the national chairman of the PDP,  Prince Uche Secondus, assured the aspirants that the party will be neutral, adding that there is no preferred candidate.

Secondus told them not to rely on any party leader, not even members of the National Working Committee (NWC).

“Go and work on the delegates. They are the ones that will elect you as candidate, no one else, not even members of the NWC.

“All I can assure you is that we are going to conduct free, fair and transparent primaries in Kogi and Bayelsa states,” Secondus stated.

In Bayelsa State, 21 aspirants including the deputy governor, John Jona, the secretary to the state government (SSG), Kemela Okara, former managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Timi Alaibe, former permanent secretary, Ministry of Power, Ambassador Godknows and Senator Douye Diri, were also cleared for the primary.
