A group of Peoples Democratic Party members in Adamawa state under the aegis of PDP Aggrieved Aspirants Forum, has threatened to seek legal redress following the party’s failure to refund the money they used to buy nomination forms.
Addressing journalists in Yola, the state capital on Thursday, leader of the aggrieved aspirants, Liazaru Eliada-Gugu, said the party had advertised for various elective positions but failed to conduct the primaries.
“We the aggrieved PDP aspirants bought forms to contest the primary election and since they did not conduct any primary election, it is only natural for them to return our money”, Mr. Eliada-Gugu, who was a senatorial aspirant in the just concluded election, said.
“We have made our request known to the leadership of our party both at the state and national level. They have promised to address the issue but up till now they have not done anything.”
“When we met the national leader of the party and the national chairman of the party, they agreed to do something about us and we were satisfied with that meeting. But after several weeks of waiting without response we are left with no other option than to take our case to court”.
