The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) has approved the timetable and schedule of activities for year
2021 party congresses in nine states.
Congresses have been scheduled to be conducted in Lagos, Oyo, Adamawa,
Kebbi, Borno, Kogi, Osun, Kwara and Ebonyi states respectively.
In the case of Lagos, Oyo, Adamawa, Kebbi, Borno, Kogi, Osun and Kwara
states, the tenure of the Excos by Section 47(1) of the PDP Constitution
(as amended) would be expiring, having been elected in 2017.
For clarity, in Kogi state congresses are to hold only in Wards and
Local Governments, while in Osun, congresses are to hold in some
respective wards only
However, in the case of Ebonyi, congress would be conducted to elect new
EXCOs following the dissolution of the state structure due to political
realignments occasioned by the defection of the state governors and
others to another party.
According to the time table, the sale of nomination forms, including
ad-hoc delegates forms has been scheduled for July 26 to August 27, 2021
while the last day for the submission of forms has been fixed for
September 6, 2021. Sale of all forms are from the National Secretariat.
By the timetable, Ward Congresses to elect Ward Excos and three ad-hoc
delegates have been scheduled for Saturday, September 25, Local
Government Congresses to elect Local Government Excos and National
Delegates have been fixed for Tuesday, October 5, 2021 while the State
Congresses have been scheduled for Saturday, October 16, 2021.
The NWC urges all members of the party and teeming supporters across the
country, particularly in the affected states, to be guided by the
official timetable and schedule of events and disregard any other
document reported to have being earlier circulated by unauthorized
National Publicity Secretary
