It also directed its local government chapters to reserve at least three slots of councillorship candidates for female aspirants across the state.

Esiso disclosed that the party’s candidates for the January 6, 2018 council poll would emerge this month.

He added that though the party’s internal arrangements would reduce the number of aspirants through consensus or mock primaries at the ward and local government levels, there would be no imposition of candidates.

“We have asked our leaders to harmonise in their various wards. But that does not stop anybody who is not satisfied with the outcome of such arrangement from obtaining nomination forms to contest the party’s primaries,” Esiso said.
