The Labour Party has approved a slight adjustment in its guidelines for the Edo State governorship primary election.
The party after its National Working Committee meeting held yesterday also adjusted by a day, the entire timetable including the dates for the purchase and submission of forms for the delegate elections, deadline for the purchase and submission of the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for the governorship primary election as well dates for the appeals.
A statement issued by the national publicity secretary Mr Obiora Ifoh said the sale of forms which was earlier slated to end today is now shifted to Monday. The date for the governorship primaries earlier fixed for February 22 will now hold on February 23.
Similarly, the leadership of the party has adjusted the guideline for the emergence of the party candidate for the election. While Two delegates will emerge from each of the 192 political wards in the state, the leadership of the party however increased the Local Government delegates from five to seven persons in all the 18 LGAs each.
