“For the purpose of the 2015 elections, the party is poised to reclaim all its lost offices in the State. Consequently, the party shall ensure internal democracy and provide a level playing field for every member seeking to contest any elective position”
“That the State chapter of the party has not and shall not zone the governorship ticket of the party to any ethnic nationality, senatorial district or local government area.
