The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has shifted the Local Government congress scheduled for tomorrow.

In a statement in Abuja by the party its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba, the party said it would announce a new date.

Ologunagba said the NWC regretted any inconveniences the postponement might have caused.

He advised all leaders, critical stakeholders and members of the party across the country to take note.

Similarly, the party also declared the Wednesday three-man ad hoc delegate congress in Ebonyi  State as null and void, saying the congress would hold tomorrow.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the said three-man ad hoc delegate congress in Ebonyi on Wednesday, 4th May 2022 is by law, null and void and as such unrecognised.

“This is because such congress is, by law, subject to be monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which in this case, is not available to monitor the exercise.

“Based on the unavailability of INEC to monitor the exercise,  the NWC rescheduled the conduct of the three-man ad hoc delegates congress in Ebonyi State for Thursday, 5th May.”

Ologunagba advised all members of the party in the state to discountenance any exercise conducted on Wednesday as the PDP three-man ad hoc delegates’ congress in the state would  hold on Thursday (NAN)
