Apart from the position of the National Secretary which was deferred because of a pending court case, election into 17 other positions was conducted and elected.
17 officers emerged from the election, after over 50 of the 75 aspirants, most presumed to be loyal to opponents of President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term ambition within the PDP, were disqualified from vying for the 17 available National Working Committee, NWC, positions of the party.
