PDP: submit unauthorized names and face jail

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has officially submitted
names of candidates for National Assembly elections to the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of the
2019 general elections.
The party notes with disdain moves by certain individuals to
illegally submit authorized names from some purported primaries
by dissident elements, notably in Ogun State.
The PDP is aware that such elements forged and sold various fake
nomination forms, and cornered the proceeds for their selfish
gains. Those who unwittingly bought these fake nomination forms did not pass through the due process of screening and did not participate
in primaries as officially conducted by the Electoral Committee set
up by the National Working Committee.
The conduct of primaries and submission of names of candidate
remain in the purview of the National Working Committee. Any
other purported primaries by any state chapter or any other level of
the party is absolutely illegal and of no consequence.
The PDP therefore warns, in the strongest possible term, that
anybody who attempts to present any name from such illegal
primaries as candidate of our party will face arrest and prosecution
for forgery and stealing of funds derived from sale of fake
nomination forms.
Furthermore, the National Working Committee therefore urge all PDP members and the general public to be calm as the rule of Law shall be strictly adhered to, particularly in all processes in our participation in the 2019 general elections.
