In Edo: PDP rejects ‘high fees’ to purchase forms


The PDP in Edo State rose from its stakeholders’ meeting in Benin on Friday, rejecting “the high fees to purchase forms as released by the national working committee of the party’’.



The meeting, subsequently, mandated the Chairman of the party in the state, Chief Dan Orbih, to inform the party’s national chairman of the position of the Edo State chapter.

Earlier, the meeting heard that party members aspiring for chairmanship positions in the party would pay one million naira, while those gunning for vice-chairmanship positions would pay N500, 000.

Similarly, those aspiring for chairmanship of the party in the local government councils would pay N300, 000, while those aspiring for chairmanship at the ward level would N100, 000.


Addressing the party members earlier, Orbih advised them not to hand over positions to people who would use the positions to negotiate their exits from the party.

Orbih, who disclosed that the fees regime was unfolded by the PDP’s national working committee, said that people interested in the positions should go ahead and collect the forms.

He, however, advised that people interested in the various positions should go about it in peaceful manner.


Orbih reiterated that the governorship and the chairmanship positions were not zoned in the state, saying, however, that a committee would work the zoning of offices next month.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Edo State is billed for governorship polls in August next year in an election expected to be characterised by back-stabbing, betrayals and violence. NAN
