Enyinnaya Abaribe, the Senate Minority Leader has said elected delegates in Abia State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP were given $2500 each to deliver Okezie Ikpeazu’s preferred candidates.
Abaribe who pulled out of the gubernatorial primary process after describing it a sham said the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, sat with the governors and agreed to use only the elected 3-man delegates which was contrary to what the law said.
