PDP HOLDS NATIONAL CONVENTION DESPITE POLICE INTERUPTION





The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), today, went ahead with its National Convention despite a court injunction stopping them and also a U-turn from its decision to postpone its national convention till November.
The party, which said that it was acting in accordance with the order given by a Port-Harcourt court to proceed with the convention, moved the convention to its Rivers State secretariat in Port Harcourt.
The convention was declared open by the factional National Chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.
PDP NEC had earlier said it would shift the convention by 90 days after the previous venue, Sharks Stadium, Port Harcourt, was sealed off by police and soldiers on Wednesday.
