FG's agents plan to disrupt PDP's national convention, Adeyeye alleges

FG's agents plan to disrupt PDP's national convention, Adeyeye alleges”

The former governor of Kaduna State said that the process of lawmaking "is not so democratic and the problem facing Nigeria goes beyond "nay" and "yea" because the moment we begin to reduce it to that, very sensitive issues that have telling effects on this country can be so lazily settled, we will face the consequences down the line".

The statement said what matters most to Makarfi is the forthcoming national convention of the PDP set to hold on Saturday, December 9.

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plots to disrupt its Saturday national convention in Abuja over fear that the success of the event will mark the end of the ruling party.

"I am glad they (committee members) are working hard and I have seen that they want to make sure that the convention of the PDP is rancour-free, transparent, and everybody will be given a level playing ground".

"PDP will see one of the best conventions like never before". We do know that in any elective convention, all kinds of views come into play but ours as a planning committee is to ensure that we deliver a convention that is credible and in which all the processes are such that will be blameless.

He also assured the former Head of State that adequate measures were being put in place to ensure a successful convention aimed at spurring more former members to reunite with the party.

He urged members of the PDP to remember that the majority of the masses are looking up to them to rescue this land and take it forward to her days of plenteous harvest. "That will enable us to heal faster, and unite faster after the convention".

Punch however reports that there are indications that the PDP would be amending the said sections at the convention to allow returnees contest for any position and to vote or be voted for after a six-month probation period. Did the PDP say why they are saying we are afraid?

On reports that the Chairman of the electoral panel and former governor of Benue State, Mr Gabriel Suswan, had declared support for a candidate, Okowa said: "I am not aware that he has declared support for any particular candidate but even if he has any sentiments for anyone, he will not be in a position at all, on the convention day to do anything that is unjust".

"They have been trying every effort, but we are happy that we have no information that it is coming from the very top".
