National Network can authoritatively enjoin  those warming up for party politics across the country to fasten their seat belts as the tenures of the serving Chairmen and Exco members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the state, local government, and ward levels will come to an end in March 2024, in some states of the federation.

Sources within the PDP have revealed that the four-year tenure of all PDP Ward Chairmen and Excos in Rivers State will expire on the 14th of March, 2024.

Similarly, the 18th of March, 2024 will mark the conclusion of the tenure of all PDP LGA Chairmen and Excos across the 23 LGAs in the State.

For Rivers State Chairman of the PDP and members of the State Excos, their tenure is also expected to conclude on the 21st of March, 2024.

It is worth noting that the Ward, LGA, and State congresses of the PDP in Rivers State took place in March 2020; the state officers were however inaugurated on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.
