The Bauchi State Chapter of the  Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday
suspended its state Congress indefinitely as measure to prevent spread of
the  dreaded COVID-19.

Alhaji Yaya Zainabari, the state Publicity Secretary of the
party told newsmen in Bauchi that the Congress was initially slated for
Tuesday, March 24.

Zainabari said the postponement of the congress indefinitely
was in compliance with the directive of government.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the state
government has placed restrictions on public and religious gatherings exceeding
50 people.

Zainabari explained that the tenure of the state executive
of the party was due to end, adding that the congress was scheduled to elect
the new executives of the party.

“Unfortunately we have a serious global medical issue that
needs to be tackled and measures have been put in place, which includes
avoiding large gatherings.

“The CONVID-19 has forced us to suspend the state congress
indefinitely’’, he said.

The party spokesman said both the Local Government and Ward
Congresses were conducted successfully ahead of the state congress.

He however urged party members to remain calm and obey
directives of government on measures against the pandemic.
