Governor of Bayelsa, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson and chairman of the Osun State PDP Gubernatorial Primary Election has submitted the report of the exercise to the party’s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus. The election, which held on Saturday, July 21 in Oshogbo, the Osun State capital, returned Senator Ademola Adeleke as the Gubernatorial Candidate for the September 22 election in the state.
Dickson said, the primary election in Osun was the most keenly contested primary he has ever seen or heard of, and expressed confidence that, if all the PDP leaders and stakeholders bury their differences and work together, the PDP will trounce the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
A press statement signed by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Francis Ottah Agbo noted that the Governor, flanked by former Governor of Niger State, Dr. Babangida Aliyu; former Minister of Water Resources, Mrs Sarah Ochekpe and other members of the Committee, submitted the report to the National Chairman at the PDP National Secretariat on Monday, July, 23.
While receiving the report, Secondus commended Governor Dickson and his team for a transparent conduct of the Osun State primary election. He said the PDP under his watch would continue to expand the frontiers of internal democracy and assured all aspirants of a level playing field in all congresses!
