The party also listed Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State as the deputy chairman of the campaign council.
Insideoyo.com recalls that the PDP had previously contacted the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Melaye who was also an aspirant in the September 4th Guber primary to chair the campaign council.
Dino Melaye however, refused to accede to the request, saying he wished the party well.
The statement further requested members of the committee to make themselves available at the party’s Wadata Plaza headquarters for official inauguration on Friday, 11th October 2019 at 10am.
The party in a similar development, also named the Governor of Bauchi state, Bala Mohammed, as the Chairman of the Bayelsa state governorship campaign council.
