Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says that the date of its national convention remained October 30th and October 31st.
The Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, briefing journalists in Abuja, said arraignments for the convention were ongoing.
Ologbondiyan also denied the media reports on alleged issues among the National Working Committee (NWC) and the convention committees, saying there was no issue as far as the convention was concerned.
The reports say that only three governors are working, that national convention committees are not meeting and the National Working Committee (NWC) members are not in their offices.
That is totally and absolutely incorrect, and some of your colleagues went upstairs into the NWC Hall, to meet with members of the NWC, who are taking their respective seats and are deliberating on the success of the forthcoming national convention.
The national convention organizing committee’s leadership are Chairman Adamawa Governor Ahmadu Fintiri; the Deputy Chairman, Gov. Diri Duoye of Bayelsa State; as well as Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State who is the Secretary of the committee.
On court case instituted against the party on Kaduna state concerning the convention, Ologbondiyan said there was no judgment in that regard, and the PDP could not work on speculation.
