Aggrieved Protesters Explain Why They Took Coffin To PDP Secretariat Yesterday




Some aggrieved PDP as­pirants, who were disqualified from participating in last week­end River state assemblies pri­maries yesterday stormed the PDP national secre­tariat in Abuja with a coffin in protest.An aspirant, Davis Saloka, said they were at the PDP secretariat to kick against the “open robbery per­petrated against them by the party.” He told newsmen that about 107 members of the party paid to obtain the nomination forms, but that only 32 whom he claimed were loyalists of Nyesom Wike, were given what he called “dubious clearance,” while the rest of them were disqualified.
“We all bought forms to participate in the PDP primary election but what we saw was out of the ordinary. We attended the screening exercise but we did not know our fate until Friday night when we saw a list pasted, in­dicating that only 32 persons were cleared to participate in the election.
