A defiant Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has decided to go ahead with the party’s convention despite an Abuja court order stopping the convention. Makarfi declared the convention opened in the Rivers state government house on Port Harcourt despite all the hiccups against the convention.
This was announced via the party’s twitter handle. Makarfi has also inaugurated the National Executive Committee of the party at the Government House. At the meeting were PDP Governors, National Assembly Caucus , Board of Trustees, National Caucus, 36 State PDP chairmen and national Caretaker Committee members of the Party. Also, the tenure of the Makarfi-led caretaker committee has been extended by the party for one year.
