The Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State on Saturday held its state congress to elect new leaders for the party.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria, who monitored the exercise at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, reports that the Congress was peaceful.

NAN reports that the exercise which was conducted by the PDP National Caretaker Committee was also monitored by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The chairman of the state Congress committee, Mr Eddie Olafeso, in his opening remarks said that the PDP National Caretaker committee had directed that the state caretaker committee should allow his committee to conduct the congress.

He explained that the conduct of the Congress was in line with the provisions of the PDP constitution and described the exercise as the first step to victory for the party in the 2019 governorship election in the state.

A total of 31 leaders were elected as the new state executive committee members with Mr Sikirulai Ogundele emerging as the chairman.

Ogundele, who addressed newsmen after the exercise, commended the organisers for the peaceful conduct, saying that it was devoid of rancour.
