Au­gust 17 PDP con­ven­tion date sacro­sanct - Makarfi

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The Se­na­tor Ahmed Makarfi-led na­tional care­taker com­mit­tee of the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has said its Au­gust 17, 2016 na­tional con­ven­tion date re­mains sacro­sanct de­spite yes­ter­day’s in­ter­locu­tory in­junc­tion.

A state­ment last night by spokesman of the care­taker com­mit­tee Prince Dayo Adey­eye said the judg­ment of the Fed­eral High Court in Port Har­court on July 4, was very clear that the care­taker com­mit­tee was duly con­sti­tuted and rec­og­nized, adding that, in line with that, the sched­uled Na­tional Con­ven­tion would still hold.

Adey­eye called on Nige­ri­ans to know that Jus­tice Okon Abang is “de­lib­er­ately en­gag­ing in acts of de­rail­ing the coun­try’s democ­racy” ex­plain­ing that the court he re­sides over is not an Ap­peal Court that can set aside the judge­ment of a Fed­eral High Court.”
