The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has approved the timetable and schedule of activities for year 2021 party congresses in nine states.
The states are Lagos, Oyo, Adamawa, Kebbi and Borno.
The others are Kogi, Osun, Kwara and Ebonyi States.
The party stated this in a statement on Thursday by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.
Mr Ologbondiyan said the excos of eight of the states, which were elected in 2017, would expire soon.
He also said the congresses would hold only in wards and local government areas in Kogi.
“In the case of Lagos, Oyo, Adamawa, Kebbi, Borno, Kogi, Osun and Kwara states, the tenure of the excos by Section 47(1) of the PDP Constitution (as amended) would be expiring, having been elected in 2017.
“For clarity, in Kogi state congresses are to hold only in Wards and Local Governments, while in Osun, congresses are to hold in some respective wards only.
“However, in the case of Ebonyi, congress would be conducted to elect new EXCOs following the dissolution of the state structure due to political realignments occasioned by the defection of the state governors and others to another party,” he said.
