An Edo State High Court has upheld the Ad-hoc delegates election conducted by the Dr. Kingsley Emu-led Edo Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ward Electoral Committee for the party’s primary elections.
The judgement delivered by Hon. Justice Vestee Otumaye Eboreime held that the election is valid.
The ruling paves the way for the elected 3-man delegate to participate in the election in order to elect candidates that will fly the PDP’s flag in the upcoming general elections.
It will be recalled that the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP had sent Dr. Kingsley Emu-led panel to conduct the congress that elected 3 ad-hoc delegates across the 18 local government areas in Edo State.
Their assignment was followed by an Appeal panel that visited the state, and certified the processes of the congress. The panel submitted that no petition was received, which showed that PDP in Edo State was united.
