Buba_marwa_mohammedA former Military Administrator of Lagos State, Brig-Gen. Buba Marwa (retd.), on Friday submitted his governorship form at the national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party in Abuja.

Marwa, who was accompanied by some of his political associates, expressed optimism on getting the party’s waiver so that he would be able to contest the PDP primaries slated for September 6, 2014 in Adamawa State.

Marwa, who had contested the Adamawa governorship election in 2011, was confident that the issue of waiver won’t pose an obstacle to his ambition.

He said, “Certainly there is a provision of the PDP constitution which says all members who aspire to run for any office, whether for party’s position or actual government or elective positions, should have spent a minimum of two years failing which they will not be able to run, unless they are granted a waiver of this position.

“I don’t see any great difficulty with this in the sense that during the tenure of the former chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, you will recall the party structures were dissolved and new congresses were organised for the party and all those new members that defected from the CPC, spent less than two months and were deemed qualified to run in the congresses and today they remain in elective positions.

“Nobody asked them for waiver, and none was given, based on that we have full confidence that the issue of waiver will not be an issue, because if it has been done in Adamawa state for others it will be extended.

“In any case, almost everybody in the party will ask for waiver because fresh registration took place at that time and so you will find out almost everybody has spent less than two years in the party.

“I have applied for waiver through the normal processes and I am confident that it will be amicably resolved”, he said.
