PDP also announced the extension of the tenure of ward caretaker committees of Edo State for a period of 30 days.

“The NWC enjoins all party leaders, critical stakeholders, and members of the PDP in Edo State to be guided by this and continue to work together in the overall interest of the party in the state,” the statement added.
