Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State Kingsley Esiso has said candidates will be selected for the local government polls instead of the usual primaries.

Esiso, who addressed party executives in Sapele Local Government at the weekend, said: “Tenure of the present chairman and councillors will soon end and some aspirants are already planning to contest for the positions. But we have decided to guide the system.

“The chairmanship form is N2 million; councillor N350,000, and form will be sold to only one aspirant. We have one form for chairman and one form for one councillor.

“It’s your right to aspire and nobody can fault you for aspiring, everybody has a right to aspire, but we cannot have two chairmen or councillors at the same time. If you are aspiring, check yourself, do what I call political analysis of the environment. If you know you scored less than 50 per cent, don’t waste your money.”
