Factional leader of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff, has described as illegal and unconstitutional the Monday June 20th Edo state gubernatorial primaries that saw the emergence of Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the party's flagbearer for the Edo state governorship election slated for September 10th.
In a letter he signed and sent to the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, yesterday June 21st, Sheriff said the primaries that was carried out by the Ahmed Makarfi led caretaker committee in Edo state should be disregarded by the electoral body.
According to him, himself and members of his National Working Committee have slated another party congress for the state where the gubernatorial primary election will be held. He said the congress will hold from June 23rd to June 29th. The Markafi-led caretaker committee of the party had on Monday conducted a Gubernatorial Primary Election which had in attendance PDP governors and other important party members.
