Acccording to him, they had to put in place tight security to prevent ghost workers whose presence they were watching out for at the venue of the congress.

The governor noted that the outcome of the congress has far reaching effects on the party at the national level.
“This is a zonal congress but it has ramifications for the party at the national level.
“If we get it right in the South West, then we know that the future will be bright for the Peoples Democratic Party at the national level.
“This is not just an election for zonal officials but we are here to put in our best and they will in turn represent us at the national level”, he added.
