Reports from Adamawa state said the original foundation members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP made a clean sweep of the local government area congresses which were successfully held throughout Adamawa State on Thursday (today).
An observer of the intrigues noted that one revealing aspect of the Congresses,beside the very large turn-out recorded all over the state is the overwhelming defeat of the candidates from Governor Murtala Nyako’s camp who originally came into the PDP from the All Nigeria People’s Party, ANPP.
The party had suffered a series of crises following the alienation of the original PDP members from the party’s platform by the actions of the governor who showed preference for his fellow travelers from the ANPP.
The first-ever congresses have attracted a massive and enthusiastic following by party members who have clamored for this opportunity to choose their leaders.
Today’s local government congresses were monitored by the party headquarters and the Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC in fulfillment of statutory requirements.
