Gov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa insisted on Friday that the results of the local government elections in the state were irreversible.
The elections have pitted the governor against the PDP leadership in Abuja.
"Of course, the election stands because the result of the election was not determined by the party. It was determined by the State Independent Electoral Commission (SIEC)," Nyako told newsmen in Abuja after a three-and-half hour meeting with PDP's National Working Committee (NWC).
He insisted that since the PDP candidates were not the only ones that contested the elections, the party could not unilaterally cancel the election.
Nyako said the meeting was in the interest of the party and the state, adding that it would not generate any crisis.
"Whatever we had to do is done in the best interest of the party. I can assure you that it will not become a problem because whatever we had to do, have been done in the best interest of the party and our state".
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalled that PDP executives had expressed displeasure at the conduct of the party primaries leading to the emergence of candidates for the local government elections in Adamawa.
The crisis led to the dissolution of the state executive council of the party and the appointment of a caretaker committee in its stead.
