Briggs Commends Cancellation Of Rivers PDP Primaries

A Rivers State governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, has commended the national leadership of the party for cancelling the ward congresses of the party in the state.
Lulu-Briggs is one of the governorship aspirants that called on the party’s national leadership of the party to cancel the ward congresses, which were boycotted by some aspirants due to perceived irregularities.
In a statement by his media aide, Al-Humphrey Onyanabo, on Monday, Lulu-Briggs said that for equity sake, it would be in the best interest of the PDP to adopt zoning as a criterion for choosing its governorship candidate.
He said, “I must congratulate the national executive of our great party, the PDP, for having the boldness to do the right thing. It took a lot of courage but then, I have always known that our party, the PDP, will do the right thing. The PDP has a great internal democracy mechanism that has always helped us to resolve issues; that is the strength of our party.
“From the onset the majority of Rivers people were against the ward congresses because we felt a lot of things had not been put in place and it was, therefore, like putting the cart before the horse – to have a ward congress when a party register was not in place. But certain persons felt they had the powers to go ahead despite our protest and today, the congresses have been cancelled. Those ward congresses were a sham.
“Also, don’t forget that President Goodluck Jonathan will not allow impunity to occur within the party in Rivers because he wants the best for the state.”
The aspirant said the upland parts of the state had produced governors for two consecutive terms of eight years each, adding that it would be unfair to the people of the waterside to be denied again in 2015.
