The Peoples Democratic Party National Convention slated for October 30-31 will go ahead as planned.
The Organising Committee of the party has insisted on the schedule despite a Kaduna High Court order.
The Chairman of the Convention Committee, Eng. Seyi Makinde in a statement said the party will not be swayed by the court order.
“The committee is alerting members of our party and members of the public that we are aware of the actions of a few misguided members who have approached the High Court in Kaduna in an attempt to prevent our great party, the PDP from holding its National Convention on October 30 and 31, 2021.
“Notwithstanding their right to approach a court of competent jurisdiction to air their grievances, we maintain that the National Executive Committee of the PDP has acted in good faith in fixing our convention for October 30 and 31.
“It is not meant to witch-hunt anyone or to truncate anyone’s mandate”, the Oyo State governor said.
“We call on all members and supporters of the PDP to ignore this distraction as we prepare to host a convention that will send a clear signal to Nigerians that the PDP is the only party that has the will and the might to rescue Nigeria from the catastrophe that we have been enduring for the past six years.
“We are aware that a united PDP is a threat to the forces that seek to divide us. Therefore, we urge our teeming supporters nationwide to keep the faith as we are taking all necessary measures to ensure that we will not be distracted from our goal, ” the statement further read.
