He said instead of contesting, Finitiri should concentrate on how to conduct a transparent, free, fair and credible election.

The primary of the October 11 poll is scheduled for next Saturday – September 6, 2014.

The forthcoming bye-election was necessitated owing to the impeachment on Tuesday July 15, of the former Governor Muritala Nyako by members of the state House of Assembly.pdp logo
