The primaries would take place in Awka, the state capital, according to state chairman of the PDP, Prince Kenneth Emeakayi.
Emeakayi made this known on Thursday while speaking with journalists at the state party secretariat in Udoka Housing Estate, Awka.
He added that the local government primaries, an exercise that is expected to produce delegates for the state primaries, would hold on August 12.
“We are still screening the aspirants, 15 had already bought their nomination forms and returned while some of them have been cleared to contest the governorship election.
“Some people are alleging that the party has a consensus candidate already, but I am telling you right now that there is nothing like that, everybody must go to the field to face the members,” Emeakayi said.
