Breaking: PDP set to cancel National Convention

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to cancel its national convention scheduled to hold today, May 21 in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state.

Sources within the party who spoke with our reporter said the party will set up a caretaker committee to resolve grievances and unite the party.

Recall that the PDP had broke into two factions following the decision of the acting national chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff to seek re-election as the party’s national chairman. Some members of the party had also threaten to hold a parallel convention in Abuja today.

A top official within the party who does not want his name in print because he is not authorized to speak confirmed the situation.

“The governors have agreed to have a caretaker committee. I can tell you sheriff is gone. The governors sacrificed him. The caretaker committee will unite the party,” he said.

It will be recalled that a Lagos court has stopped PDP from electing anyone into offices of the national chairman, national secretary and national auditor of the party .

The court also granted an order restraining INEC from monitoring and or recognizing any election into the offices of the affected offices.
Meanwhile, a group within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have accused the Deputy President of Senate, Ike Ekweremadu and some persons in the Southwest PDP leadership of betraying the Southwest in the affairs of the PDP.

Ariyo-Dare Atoye, co-convener of the PDP Reform Group, in a statement made available to our reporter, the group said it is deeply saddened that two avoidable painful developments have thrown our party into a serious dilemma and an intractable crisis.
