Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has affirmed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, national convention will still hold on for August 17, 2016, in Port Harcourt.

Wike explained that the National Convention will hold as scheduled because the court is yet to hear the suit filed by sacked Senator Ali Modu Sheriff challenging the holding of the National convention.

The governor stated this while addressing South-South Executive Committee of the PDP at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday.

“The court could not have sacked Senator Ahmed Makarfi because it cannot sit on appeal on the judgement of a court of coordinate jurisdiction,” said Wike.

The governor explained that there is an application to allow Senator Markafi to be joined as a party in the suit. He said that the suit was adjoined to August 15.

On the forthcoming national convention, Wike stated that the leaders of the PDP in the Southern Geo-political zones will meet on Thursday to determine the zoning of positions.

He further added that the PDP will emerge stronger from the current challenges as Nigerians are waiting for the party to provide leadership.

Wike also stated that the Edo State Chapter of the PDP will be supported to win the Edo State Governorship.

“PDP in the South-South cannot be complete until we take over Edo State. Therefore, I urge INEC to conduct free and fair elections in Edo State and every other state where we have elections. I thank the party in Edo State for doing quite well in their campaigns. As an opposition party, they have promoted the party’s chances through committed campaigns “, he said.

The National Vice Chairman of PDP (South-South), Emma Ogidi commended Governor Wike for using the people’s mandate to transform Rivers State.

He said Governor Wike is a complete party man who has helped in rebuilding the party through his engagements with party stakeholders across the country.
