PDP nominates Ibori into convention committee

PDP nominates Ibori into convention committee

Saturday's non-elective national convention is put together by the opposition party to extend the tenure of the Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee to enable them conduct the elective convention which is speculated to hold in November.

"If there are interested members of the caretaker committee in elected positions such as president, senator or governor, such persons should not remain in office as members of the caretaker committee for more than three months", he said.

The Peoples Democratic Party said in Abuja on Thursday that it was expecting those it described as "high-profile " defectors to join its fold within the next three weeks. "We cannot afford to make another mistake that could affect the fortunes of the party in the days ahead", he said. Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, said this while inspecting the Eagles Square, venue for party's upcoming Convention.

"I believe that a lot of people who thought that the party was going to implode will realise that we are back and ready to offer what it takes to better the lives of Nigerians".

Eluemunor said: "It is a privilege given to every former PDP governor.‎ Ibori is a former governor, and he has not left PDP".

"I am impressed by the renewed enthusiasm and commitment of members towards rebuilding the party after the protracted leadership tussle", he said.

"From the way things are going presently in this country, i believe Nigerians will realise that PDP is the only alternative that can bring Nigeria out of her present economic challenges", he added.

In a related development, Makarfi has assured members of the party that the issues relating to the South-west zone of the party have been resolved.

Indeed. And the electorate can see through all the politicking and selfish interests in both the exits and the speeches of acceptance in new parties and what have you.

The former Senate President urged members to ensure a hitch-free convention that would strengthen the party.

Mark recalled his pledge never to dump the party after it lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 general elections.

"I have risen to where I am on the platform of the party".

"We have come this far through a tortuous journey".
