The swearing-in of the newly elected National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been postponed.
Newspot reports that Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State made this disclosure in a statement on Saturday titled “Change of Date for the Presentation of Certificate of Return and Swearing-In Ceremony of the Newly Elected PDP National Officers”.
Fintiri, who was the Chairman of the National Convention Organizing Committee (NCOC) of the PDP, revealed that the inauguration earlier scheduled for Thursday, December 9, 2021, has been moved to Friday, December 10, 2021.
The governor, however, appealed to party leaders, members and the new national officers for the inconveniences the postponement might cause them.
Fintiri also urged them to note the change of inauguration date, adding that preparation for the swearing-in is ongoing.
