The National Conscience Party, NCP, in Osun said on Sunday that it would conduct its congress to elect its flag-bearer for the August 9 governorship election in the state on June 2.
The state chairman of the party, Gideon Fasorepo, said in Osogbo that 250 delegates from all the 30 local government areas were expected to attend the congress.
He said the congress would take place at the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Press Centre, Osogbo, by 11 a.m.

“Some 250 people are expected at the congress but only 110 delegates will be allowed to vote. And those who will vote are 20 state executive members and three delegates each from the local governments,” he said.
Mr. Fasorepo said out of the three aspirants that initially indicated interest, only two obtained the nomination forms while one aspirant actually submitted the form for the primary election.
