He said that the party had finally resolved at the meeting that the local government party chairmen should come with an all- inclusive list that reflect all the areas for the Tinubu’s Campaign team.
“The party has directed all local government chairmen of the party to go back and meet to come back with formidable list that will be acceptable to all that will serve as the PCC in the state and operate at each level.
“As you are aware there is a PCC list from national level for the state, that list will not be affected ”, he said.
