The PDP’s Lagos State Chapter urged the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to postpone the House of Assembly and House of Representatives primaries scheduled for Sunday in Lagos.

Its chairman, Philips Aivoji, made the announcement at a news conference in Ikeja, where he was joined by other state executives, governorship aspirants, and party leaders.

He claimed that the electoral committees’ ad hoc delegates’ lists for both primaries were tampered with.
