The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says it would go ahead with Anambra state governorship election primary scheduled for tomorrow, June 26, despite two court rulings, on the party’s leadership legitimacy.

A statement signed by PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan and sent to African Community News, also announced the dissolution of the party’s executive committee in Anambra state, following court ruling that the committee has become illegal.

The PDP said- “In view of the two judgments of the court served on our party, the National Working Committee (NWC), on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) and pursuant to Section 29(2)(b) of the PDP Constitution (2017 as amended) hereby dissolves all the executives in our Anambra state chapter.

“However, our processes towards electing a candidate for the purpose of the November 6, 2021 Anambra governorship election subsist.

“Our processes continue as we adopt a lawful process of allowing our eligible automatic delegates to carry out the responsibilities of electing our candidate for the governorship election.
