The National Working Committee of the People’s Democratic Party has canceled all primaries in Ebonyi State after complaints by aspirants about the exercise.

Disclosing this in a statement on Sunday, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba, said the PDP NWC took the decision after “very extensive consultations, deliberations and review of all issues” surrounding the primaries in the state.

Among the issues raised by aspirants include electoral fraud.

The statement titled, ‘PDP Cancels Primaries in Ebonyi State’ partly reads, “To this effect, all State House of Assembly, National Assembly and Governorship primaries of our Party in Ebonyi State are hereby cancelled.

“The NWC will announce new dates for the affected Party exercises in the State.

“The PDP charges all aspirants, critical stakeholders, leaders and members of our great Party in Ebonyi State to remain calm, united and focused as the PDP takes firm steps to rescue our nation from the misrule of the rudderless, corrupt and incompetent All Progressives Congress.”
