EKITI PDP MAKES U TURN, EXPRESSES READINESS TO PARTICIPATE IN LG ELECTION.
Ekiti State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has expressed its readiness to participate in the forthcoming Local government election.
The party had recently vowed to boycott the poll, though later denied.
In a statement in Ado Ekiti, the party publicity secretary, Mr Jackson Adebayo maintained that there was no amount of attempt by the ruling party that would stop the PDP from its resolves to participate in the election.
The party explained that it was not unusual for some members to want to play fifth columnist in any political party but when such action is established it would be naturally treated as an anti-party activity.
The party therefore called on all members to ignore the rantings of some individuals against participation of its members in the council election.
Mr Adebayo who said that apart from the decision of the State Executive Committee of the Party to participate in the election, the State working Committee had been up and doing in the preparations for the election, saying all necessary forms have been obtained by candidates while the party had concluded all documentation at the State Independent Electoral Commission.
The PDP spokesperson also explained that the Party had put some mechanisms in place to ensure that unity reign supreme in the Party.
