Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, has said that the successful conduct of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Special National Convention which elected officials into the party’s National Working Committee (NEC) will usher in a new era of peace, unity and progress in the party.
This is despite the walk-out staged by former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and eight state governors to hold a separate convention at the Shehu Yar’Adua Centre, not too far from the Special National Convention venue at Eagle Square, Abuja.
Speaking at Eagle Square, Uduaghan, who was the Essential Materials Committee Chairman of the convention, said the large turnout was indicative of the new found oneness in the party. He also said that the convention demonstrated the party’s high regard for the due process and rule of law.
“The convention portends progress for the party at all levels as it will bring on board competent party men and women through democratic process,” the governor stated.
Uduaghan, who led 100 delegates from Delta State to the convention, urged party members to rally round President Goodluck Jonathan and the national leadership of the party to ensure that the party remained united, strong and relevant.
Below is the list of new party leaders elected at the convention:
Secondus Uche Prince — Deputy National Chairman
Onwe Solomon Onwe — Deputy National Secretary

Nnaedozie Okechukwu — Deputy National Organising Secretary
