FG's agents plan to disrupt PDP's national convention, Adeyeye alleges

We will not allow Atiku to vote at our convention – PDP

The reaction comes three days after the former vice president announced that he was returning to the PDP, following his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC) last month.

CHAIRMAN of the PDP National Elective Convention Committee and governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has said the party's governors are not supporting one chairmanship candidate, dismissing rumours that the governors were forcing a national chairman on the party as false.

The statement said what matters most to Makarfi is the forthcoming national convention of the PDP set to hold on Saturday, December 9.

"PDP will see one of the best convention like never before", IBB added.‎.

He said the party had "credible information" that some "overzealous elements in the government" were planning to "disrupt" the convention.

However, the party said he would be allowed to speak at the convention.

Makarfi assured members and supporters of the party that his focus is to ensure that the convention is credible, transparent and successful.

He urged members of the PDP to remember that the majority of the masses are looking up to them to rescue this land and take it forward to her days of plenteous harvest.

On November 30, a woman had given birth to the boy and a stillborn girl at the Shalimar Bagh hospital. They immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where the doctors confirmed one of them to be alive.

"The various sub-committees are really working very hard".

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said the claim that the APC was afraid of conducting its convention "is an empty platitude" lacking in substance.

He also informed the PDP chieftain that he was aware of the allegations that some governors were trying to hijack the process, saying it was speculative and wrong.

"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".

The current spokesperson of the PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, while briefing newsmen about the convention, however revealed that the party had barred Atiku from casting a vote at Saturday's convention. Ekos Akpokabayen has appealed to the party members worldwide to work towards achieving the most desired and expected success in the upcoming National convention.

Adeyeye further noted that Osun State would not participate in the national convention, adding that Anambra State was still under consideration due to disagreements in the state.

"It is not the first time we find states making use of statutory delegates to avoid conflicts that have to do with the legitimacy of elected delegates".
