The Kano state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the governorship primary conducted in the state on Monday.
National Working Committee (NWC) of the party set up an Electoral Committee which conducted the election.
The State Chairman of the party, Sen. Mas’ud Doguwa, declared the stand of the party while addressing newsmen in Kano on Tuesday.
Doguwa said the committee, led by Ezeogu Emeka-Onuaha, did not conduct a credible election.
“With this attitude of impunity of enforcing candidates on members of the party, the national leadership of the party is doing nothing but paving way for the All progressives Congress (APC) to win elections in Kano State,” he said.
According to him, a court had ordered a substantial order that the party’s caretakers were operating illegally, yet they went ahead and conducted the governorship primaries, saying members of the party would not accept such illegality.
