The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has fixed March 7 for the conduct of its primary for the Osun governorship election.

The development was announced on Wednesday in a statement issued by Umar Bature, PDP national organising secretary.

The national working committee (NWC) of the PDP had, on January 10, named a five-member screening panel chaired by Mohammed Bello Adoke, former attorney-general of the federation, for the 2022 governorship primary in the state.

The panel had cleared all aspirants for the exercise.


According to Bature, a stakeholders’ meeting on the forthcoming election will hold on February 1 in Abuja, while ward congresses to elect delegates will take place two weeks after the meeting.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) of our great Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at its 544th meeting today, the 26th of January, 2022, after a careful consideration, approved the Osun State Screening Committee and Appeal Panel reports which cleared all the six (6) gubernatorial aspirants,” the statement reads.
