They also cautioned the incumbent governor and the state chairman of the party not to allow any form of distabilasation that could affect the fortunes of the PDP in the forthcoming election.

According to the group, no aspirant will want to be pushed aside after spending over N20 million naira to obtain the party’s nomination form.

They also appeal to the leadership of the party to put heads together and ensure that the best candidate represents the party in the November poll.
