As the Ondo elections draw closer, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has fixed a specific notable amount as ticket fee for all governorship aspirants.
According to a timetable released in Abuja by the National Organising Secretary, Austin Akobundu, the sale of expression of interest and nomination forms will last from June 8 to June 22. While the last day for the submission of forms will be June 26.
He also said that the governorship primary will be preceded by ward congresses to elect three-man ad-hoc ward delegates on July 8 and local government congresses to elect one national delegate on July 15. The governorship aspirants are also expected to pay N1 million for the collection of expression of interest form and N20 million for the nomination form.
However, National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, has revealed that the female aspirants are only required to pay N1 million for the expression of interest form, while the nomination form will be given to them free of charge.
