PDP Raises Alarm Over Plot To Disrupt Convention
The leadership of the PDP is worried.
They have said that some “overzealous elements” in the APC are planning to disrupt the party’s national convention on Saturday in Abuja.
The interim National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dayo Adeyeye made the allegation on Wednesday in Abuja.
He called on the president to investigate and ensure that the convention is not disrupted.
“We have credible information that some overzealous elements in the APC Government want to disrupt the PDP national convention.
“It is not from the very top; they know that if we have a hitch-free convention, it will mark the end of APC in power.
“We call on President Buhari to investigate and ensure that those who want to disrupt the convention refrain from doing so,” he said.
According to Adeyeye, disrupting the convention is tantamount to disrupting the country’s democracy.
He urged Buhari to go the extra mile to ensure that the PDP convention is successful by providing sufficient security in and around the arena.
He stated that while PDP was in power, the party did not interrupt programmes of other political parties rather, it encouraged the growth of the APC.
Adeyeye said that accreditation for the convention would be strictly monitored, and warned that persons not accredited would not be allowed within the vicinity of the Eagles Square.
According to him, the list of accredited delegates will be made available to all aspirants at least 48 hours before the convention.
Adeyeye said Osun would not participate in the national convention and Anambra is still under consideration following disagreements in Awka.
Former Vice President, Abubakar Atiku, will deliver a speech at the convention but may not be allowed to vote.
He announced that the Chairman of the Convention Planning Committee, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, would meet with all chairmen of the party in the states on Friday.
He said that the meeting would hold at the PDP National Secretariat in Abuja at 10 a.m. and that attendance is mandatory.
