The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said in Abuja on Friday that it had submitted names of candidates for National Assembly elections to the Independent National Electoral Commission ahead of the 2019 general elections.

It, however, noted that there were moves by unnamed individuals to illegally submit what it called unauthorised names from some purported primaries by those it described as dissident elements, especially in Ogun State.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan said that the PDP was aware that some of its members bought fake nomination forms from individuals, who he alleged,  also cornered the proceeds.

He said, “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 candidates of our party will face arrest and prosecution for forgery and stealing of funds derived from the sale of fake nomination forms.”

He urged all PDP members and the general public to be calm,  warning that  the rule of Law shall be strictly adhered to, “particularly in all processes in our participation in the 2019 general elections.”
