The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given approval for the extension until November 30, the date for the purchase and submission of forms for elective offices for its forthcoming December National Convention.
Deadline for the purchase and submission of nomination forms had earlier been fixed for November 19.
A statement by the Publicity Secretary, PDP National Caretaker Committee, Mr Dayo Adeyeye, on Thursday in Abuja, said that the decision was arrived at the committee meeting held on Thursday after the party observed the unprecedented enthusiasm shown by party members across all the geopolitical zones to contest for elective offices at the December 19 National Convention.
This, the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) noted, has positively increased the visibility of the party and its activities in recent times.
“In order to further encourage party members and make the process more open and inclusive, the NCC has decided to extend the closing date for the purchase of nomination forms from Nov. 19 to Nov. 29.
“Completed nomination forms are now to be returned on Nov. 30. Interested members are therefore enjoined to take advantage of this extension of time.” He said.
