PDP Convention 'Il Restore Hope To Nigerians -Chieftain

PDP Convention 'Il Restore Hope To Nigerians -Chieftain”

Saturday's non-elective national convention is put together by the opposition party to extend the tenure of the Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee to enable them conduct the elective convention which is speculated to hold in November.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, confirmed at a world press conference in Abuja today that over three thousand delegates would attend the convention.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday, August 8, kick-started its planned moves to woo former President Olusegun Obasanjo, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; Senate President, Bukola Saraki; and speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, back to its fold.

He said the party must insist that any member of the caretaker committee interested in running for the offices of the president, governor or senate in the 2019 general election should step down now.

"While I was in the party as a member, I paid my dues to the fullest until I retired from partisan politics in 2015".

He was listed as No 41 in the main organizing committee of the PDP.

He said, "It is a privilege given to every former PDP governor".

"Yesterday, we had a prolong meeting with the leaders from the zone to resolve the issues and no matter what you are doing as a political party, you must lose some members and also gain others".

He said the party was ready to reclaim power from the All Progressive Congress, APC, assuring that the party will deliver dividends of democracy and engender steady growth and holistic development of the country.

"As a party, we will continue to work hard not to lose anybody, but we will work harder to bring in more members to the party". Ibori is a former governor and he has not left PDP.

In his reaction, however, APC's spokesperson, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said: "Three weeks is not forever; we will wait for it to come".

"As a party we have realised areas we made mistakes and we are working hard to correct these mistakes with a view to putting smiles on the faces of Nigerians".

Meanwhile, there was a mild drama at the PDP national secretariat on Thursday when the committee set up to screen the seven governorship aspirants for the Anambra State governorship election openly expressed displeasure about what it called acts of indiscipline by some of the aspirants.
