Sokoto holds successful PDP delegate elections



Alhaji Ibrahim Maigome, the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto State says the Ward delegate elections conducted across the 23 Local Government Areas in the state was hitch-free.

Maigome who disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Sokoto said the exercise was conducted by the party’s electoral officers.

He said the elections were supervised by officials of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Police, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) and other monitors in accordance with the Electoral Act.

“Officials at the state Party Secretariat are compiling the results simultaneously and I have not received any complaint or petition,’’ he said.

The Chairman said that three delegates – two men and a woman- are expected to emerge as winners from each ward.

He said the ward delegates will, on August 10, elect one person as national delegate from each of the 23 local government areas.

Maigome cautioned party loyalists against inciting any form of violence and urged them to respect party leaderships at all levels.

He said the party windows were still open to defectors and assured a level playing grounds for anyone who might express interest to aspire for any position.

“No candidate is endorsed by anybody and every party member will be allowed to exercise his or her civic responsibilities,’’ he said.
