The Restoration Governorship Election Primary Committee at the weekend commended the Governor Dave Umahi-led PDP Ward Congress Committee for organising a very transparent, credible and rancour-free ward congresses.

Head of Media and Publicity of the PDP Restoration Governorship Election Primary Committee, Daniel Iworiso-Markson in a statement issued in Yenagoa applauded Umahi and his team for the maturity displayed in the discharge of their duties.

The statement particularly thanked them for the painstaking manner they followed through the process, giving everybody fair hearing and providing a level-playing field for all interested parties.

Iworiso-Markson expressed profound joy that the Umahi-led committee deemed it fit to televise live on national television the collation and declaration of results which according to him was to further demonstrate the transparent, fair and credibility of the process.

He said for over three hours, the committee on live TV collated the results from all the 105 wards as each of the 8 local government areas took turns to tender their results before the panel in a rancour-free atmosphere.

The statement also congratulated all the three-man adhoc delegates from each of the 105 wards, who emerged victorious in the ward congresses and urged them to work for the interest of the party as they prepare for the governorship primary scheduked for Tuesday September 3.

It equally commended all PDP stakeholders and Bayelsans for their support in ensuring the success of the Ward congresses and called on members of the party to remain steadfast and not be distracted, saying there is still so much to be done.

The statement said: ‘The ward congress has come and gone and it is important that we move on to the next stage. I must commend all those who made the exercise peaceful and without any hitch.

“I must congratulate and commend the Governor Dave Umahi led PDP Ward Congress Committee for organising a very free, fair and transparent process. Only enemies of our party will be aggrieved about the conduct of the congresses.

“What is most interesting is the fact that it was televised live on national television for over 3 hours to show the world the level of internal democracy that exists in the PDP. We challenge other parties in the state to learn from us.

“The Restoration Governorship Election Primary Committee of the PDP will like to congratulate all those who emerged winners of the ward congress across the 105 wards in the state. There is still so much work to be done so let us remain focused and more committed.

“We thank most profoundly His Excellency, Governor Henry Seriake Dickson for creating a peacful and level playing field for the congress. We call on all party members to continue to stand by the governor and support him”.
