The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State on Wednesday refuted claims that 16 serving Council Chairmen have been given the waiver to contest the Local Government Council elections in the state scheduled March 2021.
In a statement, the State PDP Publicity Secretary, Dr. Ifeanyi Osuoza said that there is no truth in the claims as no waiver was given to any serving Chairman interested in second term.
“No automatic tickets for serving Council Chairmen,” Osuoza stated..
He described as mischievous and a figment of the imagination of the writer of what he described as ‘fake news’ which alluded that automatic ticket has been given to 16 chairmen to contest.
“This is not true,” said Osuoza, urging PDP members and other party faithful to ignore and discountenance the report.
“Anyone interested in contesting the LGA Council elections must pass through the normal and approved regulations.
“There is no waiver for anyone and no automatic ticket for anyone,” the PDP Delta State spokesman stated.
