Those cleared in Bayelsa State are Kaniebi Okoko, Great Maciver, Franklin Osaisai, Ndutime Alaibe, Benson Agadaga, Frederick Agbedi, Reuben Okoya, Diri Douye, Talford Ongolo, Kemlea Okara, Gboribiogha Jonah, Benson Konbowei, Godknows Igali, Johnson Kiyaramo, Paulker Emmanuel, Yariela Oliver, Anthony George-Ikoli, Robinson Etolor, Nimibofa Ayawei, David Alagoa and Igiri Ziperedein.

The PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus while addressing the aspirants said the party had no preference as to the aspirants, who emerge the governorship candidates in the two states, adding that the party would ensure transparent governorship primary elections in the states.

Secondus said, “The election of the ad hoc delegates will resume from Thursday.  The elections will be transparently done to the satisfaction of all.  The party, and indeed, the National Working Committee have no preferred candidates. We can’t do that to the detriment of the party.

“Our only duty is to ensure that only the best candidates emerge. We will follow the rules to the letter because we want the best. Anyone that tells you that the party has a preferred candidate is deceiving you. The era of impunity in the party is gone.

As the National Chairman, I will not preside where anyone will claim that he or she is the preferred candidate of the party. (Independent)
