The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has fixed its local government primaries for councilorship aspirants for May 28.

The state PDP Chairman, Adedeji Doherty, confirmed the shift in date from May 25 to 28 on Monday in a chat with newsmen.

He said the move was to enable the party complete the screening process of the candidates for the forthcoming July 24 council elections.

“Most likely, it is going to happen on Thursday or Friday. We opted to move it forward because we have quite a lot of responses in the aspirants for the councillorship seats.

“We didn’t think we were going to have that many aspirants, but we have quite a lot. So, our screening procedure has been extended,” Doherty said.

The PDP chairman added that the party would field candidates from the chairmanship and councillorship seats across the 20 local government areas and the 37 local council development areas of the state.

While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
