The PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, disclosed this yesterday, while briefing journalists in Abuja on preparations for the governorship primary.
Ologbondiyan confirmed that 51 appointees of the Ekiti State government, who emerged as the ad-hoc delegates during the ward congresses were disqualified by the party, because they failed to resign their appointments before contesting to delegates in their respective wards.
The opposition spokesman ruled out the replacement of the disqualified delegates.
Ologbondiyan said the party is confident that the state congress  would be peaceful, especially as the process leading to governorship primary has been very transparent.
