The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Convention Organising Committee (NCOC) has alerted members of the party and members of the public that it is aware of the actions of a few misguided PDP members who have approached the High Court in Kaduna in an attempt to prevent the party from holding its National Convention on October 30 and 31, 2021.
Secretary, National Convention Organising Committee (NCOC), Governor Seyi Makinde issued the alert in a statement late Sunday.
The statement said, “Notwithstanding their right to approach a court of competent jurisdiction to air their grievances, we maintain that the National Executive Committee (NEC) 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.
“Therefore, 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 clearly 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.
“We are determined to strengthen our party structure and put in the work needed to unify and restore our great nation back on the path to economic prosperity and greatness.
“We therefore urge all party faithful to continue to rally support as we prepare to host our National Convention on October 30 and 31, 2021.”
