PDP Aspirants In Adamawa Demand Refund Of Nomination Fees

A group of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in Adamawa State under the banner, PDP Aggrieved Aspirants Forum, has threatened to sue the party for allegedly failing to refund the money they paid for nomination forms.
Addressing journalists in Yola on Thursday, May 14, 2015, the chairman of the group, Liazaru Eliada-Gugu, said the party advertised for various elective positions but failed to conduct the primaries.
Eliada-Gugu who was a senatorial aspirant in the just concluded election, said the aspirants bought forms to contest the primary election but since the party did not conduct any, it was only natural that the money for the forms be refunded to them.
 “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,” he stated.
He said the national chairman of the party agreed to do something about it when they met with him but after several weeks of waiting without response they had no option than to go to court.
