Se­nate seat: PDP as­pi­rant threat­ens le­gal ac­tion

Is Ayade bit­ing more than he can chew?

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS -

stip­u­lated by the guide­lines from his po­si­tion as Zonal Vice Chair­man, Borno Cen­tral Sen­a­to­rial Dis­trict be­fore par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pri­maries, stress­ing that he in­flu­enced the se­lec­tion of del­e­gates for the pri­maries.

Mr Goni, there­fore, threat­ened to seek re­dress in court if the na­tional lead­er­ship of the party failed to ad­dress the is­sue.

“The in­el­i­gi­bil­ity of Al­haji Ka­leri to par­tic­i­pate in the pri­maries in­di­cates a sign of in­dis­ci­pline/cor­rup­tion within the Borno State chap­ter of the PDP while the op­po­si­tion at the na­tional level is talk­ing about elim­i­nat­ing in­dis­ci­pline and cor­rup­tion in the na­tion. This might be an omi­nous sign threat­en­ing the party’s suc­cess ahead of the 2015 sen­a­to­rial by-elec­tion.

“Mr. Chair­man Sir, by cit­ing these ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties dis­cov­ered in the pri­mary elec­tion, the party should de­clare that the pri­maries con­ducted by the PDP in Borno State was in clear vi­o­la­tion of the elec­toral Act and out­come of the said pri­maries voided. We await for a favourable re­sponse within five work­ing days or seek le­gal re­dress from a com­pe­tent court of law,” he added.
