Accreditation of delegates has begun in the ongoing governorship primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State.
About 2,111 delegates are expected to participate in the primary.
Eight aspirants, including Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, Ayorinde Bode, Ebiseni Sola, Eyitayo Jegede, Kunlere Boluwaji, Okunomo Banji Ben, Olafeso Eddy and Godday Erewa were cleared to contest at the primary.
Delegates had a hectic time getting through the entrance gate as they had to be properly identified.
Chairman of the Primary Committee and Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who arrived the venue at about 1:30pm,assured the exercise would be free and fair.
Meanwhile, some PDP youths,who had earlier protested, to the venue were not allowed entrance.
The youths alleged that some persons were caught with already thumb printed ballot papers. (Nation)
