PDP National Convention’ll hold – BoT Chair, Jibril blasts Secondus


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has insisted that its planned national convention would hold.


PDP’s Chairman Board of Trustees, BoT, Walid Jibril, said the convention would hold despite the suit challenging the event by the party’s suspended National Chairman, Uche Secondus.


The Rivers State High Court restrained Secondus from parading himself as the party’s chairman.


But, Secondus vowed never to withdraw the suit challenging his removal from office.


He had challenged PDP to stop all forms of preparation for the convention pending the hearing of his case in the Court of Appeal.


However, Jubril urged Secondus not to make the former ruling party ungovernable.


Featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, the BoT chairman insisted that the party’s National convention would take place as scheduled.


According to Jibrin: “It will be very wrong for Secondus, being a founding member of the PDP, to make the party ungovernable.


“Could it be now that he goes against what the party is doing, what the party intends to do? I say it will be very wrong if Secondus is taking another fight completely, yielding the course to solve his own problem.


“Everything will come to an end. He had been in this party since the formation of the party. Is he going to die, what is going to happen to him? Let’s look at the party as supreme and go on with the decision of this party.


“I would like to say that the convention planned for the 30th of this month is on and we’re going to be there and carry out our duties and improve our party.


“We have processes and we have the national deputy chairman from the south, where he comes from and he is on course and he is now leading our party. His presence in the convention is not necessary at all.”
