The Peoples Democratic Party has appointed the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, as head of the party’s panel to probe the 2019 presidential elections.
This was confirmed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, at the 89th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
This move was made to probe the performance of the party in the 2019 presidential election as well as other elections, including the November 16 governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi States.
The Bauchi State governor was chosen alongside Dr Emmanuel Agbo as his secretary, Babangida Aliyu and Senator Istifanus Gyang (North-Central), Sule Lamido and Tanimu Turaki (North-West), Yakubu Dogora and Hassan Baduje (North-East), Austin Okpara and Senator Stella Omu (South-South), Francis Nwaifuru and Austine Nnamani (South-East).
Ologbondiyan noted that NEC had agreed to express concern in other elections in relations to the weight of evidence including the Osun, Kaduna, Kano, and Katsina governorship elections, while it waits to hear from the Supreme Court on the party’s appeal for the review of the apex court’s judgment on Imo State.
Recall, the judgement sacked the 2019 Imo State governorship candidate, Chief Emeka Ihedioha.
“NEC also resolved that members should abide by the rules that guide the congresses. We must do everything in a manner that must guarantee free, fair, and credible congresses and that our irreducible minimum is the presidential congress of the party which held in Port Harcourt,” he Ologbondiyan.
He gave the assurance that the party would ensure free, fair and credible primaries.
