Ex-PDP scribe opts out on Kogi gov­er­nor­ship cam­paign

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - Saawua Terzungwe

Aformer act­ing na­tional sec­re­tary of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), Dr. Musa Babayo, has de­clined mem­ber­ship of the party’s cam­paign com­mit­tee for the Novem­ber 21 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Kogi State.

Speak­ing in a tele­phone in­ter­view with our cor­re­spon­dent yesterday, Dr Babayo, who noted that his name had been pub­lished as a mem­ber of the cam­paign com­mit­tee for the elec­tion, said he would not par­tic­i­pate in the process.

He said he would pre­fer to be ex­cused from the cam­paign team which would be in­au­gu­rated very soon be­cause he was ex­am­in­ing his mem­ber­ship of the PDP.

“I de­clined my nom­i­na­tion to serve on the com­mit­tee be­cause I am cur­rently re­view­ing my mem­ber­ship of the PDP,” he said.

Last week, the PDP raised cam­paign com­mit­tees for Kogi and Bayelsa gov­er­nor­ship elec­tions slated for Novem­ber 21 and De­cem­ber 5 re­spec­tively.
