The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cleared the immediate past Commissioner for Information and Orientation in Bayelsa, Daniel Iworiso-Markson for the May 12th House of Representatives primary election of the party.
The committee headed by Edward Pwajok, cleared Iworiso-Markson to contest the ticket of the PDP for Ogbia Federal Constituency after the screening that took place in Yenagoa, the state capital on Wednesday.
Speaking shortly after the exercise, Iworiso-Markson commended members of the party for the smooth, transparent and peaceful exercise.
He also lauded the leadership of the party for the mechanisms put in place to ensure that internal democracy remained a basic tenet of its activities.
The former commissioner said having crossed the hurdle of the screening, his focus would be to emerge as the flag bearer of the party, insisting that he possessed the requisite experience, networks and contacts to bring a novel type of representation.
He said: “It was a smooth process. It went well and it was worth every moment. I need to thank members of the committee for doing a very good job. There was a thorough check on all our documents.
Let me also thank the leadership of our party, for their relentless effort to ensure that internal democracy remains a major hallmark of our activities. This is of course what makes us different from other parties.
