After very careful deliberations on the reports of the Electoral and Appeal Panels on the Congresses of Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos, Imo, Benue and Katsina States, the National Working Committee (NWC) has approved repeat primaries in some Federal and State Constituencies.
In a statement signed by the party’s national publicity secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba the rerun will take place at the following underlined places:

1. Ahiazu State Constituency of Imo State
2. Orsu State Constituency of Imo State
3. Musawa State Constituency of Katsina State
4. Dandume State Constituency of Katsina State
5. Zango State Constituency of Katsina State
6. Oru East/Orsu/Orlu Federal Constituency of Imo State
7. Kwande/Ushongo Federal Constituency of Benue State
“Monday, June 6, 20221. Lagos State House of Representatives Primaries (24 Federal Constituencies).
“Furthermore, Kaduna Central Senatorial District of Kaduna State, Enugu West Senatorial Districts of Enugu State as well as Boki/Ikom Federal Constituency and Yakuur II State Constituency, both of Cross River State earlier scheduled for Saturday June 4, 2022 have been cancelled,” the statement concluded.
Recall that singer and actor, Banky W was one of those purportedly robbed of his victory at the primary held two.weeks ago.
The married father of one had won the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to contest for the House of Representatives, Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat in the 2023 elections.
His 28 votes put him on top of the list of other contenders jostling for the same ticket.
But in a curious twist, he was denied the ticket. With this new development, it remains to be seen if he will clinch the ticket one more time.
