Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers says
the Peoples Democratic Party’s
National Convention will hold on
Saturday as scheduled by its
National Executive Committee.
Wike, Chairman of the party`s National
Convention Committee, said at a news
conference in Port Harcourt on Friday that all
organs of the party approved the convention.
He said that all the organs of the party
recognised by its constitution met and
approved the convention.
“As I speak to you, the governors of the PDP
in the 12 states we control, Deputy Senator
President, party’s minority leader in the
Senate, House of Representatives and every
organ of the party are all in Port Harcourt for
this convention”, he said.
Wike said the Independent National Electoral
Commission had indicated that it would
observe the convention.
According to him, those who planned to hold a
parallel convention are still members of the
party and will not be thrown away.
“ PDP is still one. It will hold its National
Convention on Saturday”, he said.
Wike also said that its acting National
Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, had clarified in
writing that he did not go to court to stop the
Port Harcourt convention.
He said the party`s legal team had filed a
motion for stay of execution and an appeal
against court orders stopping the convention.
“ In consultation with our legal team, we
have filed an appeal and stay of execution.
“ It is clear that when an order is made and
the party takes steps instantly by filing a
motion for stay of execution and appeal, that
party cannot be held for disobeying a court
order”, he said.
Wike said the party was of the opinion that the
purported court order by Sheriff was
fraudulent because it did not emanate from
