LGA Chairmanship; Bayelsa PDP To Study Supreme Court Verdict



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State says, it has received a copy of the Supreme Court judgement re-instating three former local government Chairmen in the State.

A PDP statement, says it will study the judgment of the Nation’s apex court a view to enabling the party take a firm decision on the way forward. “As you are well aware, this is a new PDP and we are very mindful of the new image of party in the state. You will recall so-called re-instated Chairmen of the party have since parted ways party to join Change Advocacy Party (CAP). To us in the party, we take it that they are no longer members of party and as such we need to study the judgment carefully and then decide on an appropriate course of that should be taken going forward”.

The statement by Col. Sam Inokoba , chairman, PDP Bayelsa State chapter however, noted Supreme Court decision will not in any way affect the PDP local government chairmanship primaries scheduled this weekend.

It urged party faithful across the State not be deterred, but go about their normal duties as well as ensure that credible chairmanship primaries are held.


While expressing confidence in the Nation’s Judiciary, the statement is of the firm belief that, rather than dampening the resolve of the party, it will strengthen it to do well at the forthcoming LGA polls in the State.

The affected Local Government Areas are Ekeremor, Sagbama and Kolokuma/Opokuma.

The State PDP LGA Chairmanship primaries will hold in all the 8 Local Government
Areas on Saturday.
