The Chairman of National Caretaker Committee, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi, said there were five failed attempts to stop the Saturday non-elective national convention of the party.
Makarfi disclosed this at the opening ceremony of the 75th PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party held at the party national Secretariat on Friday in Abuja.
He said that the purpose of the meeting was to enable the NEC members to review all that is happening across the country.
“At least there were four or five attempts to this convention through the court but as God will have it we overcame all those attempts.”He said.
The Governor of Ekiti, Mr Ayodele Fayose, also speaking at the meeting, pledged the forum’s commitment and submission to PDP decisions.
He urged all NEC members to embrace the spirit of new beginning for the party to make the Saturday convention a success.
The Chairman, PDP Board of Trustees (BOT), Sen. Wali Jubrin gave the assurance that the board would not allow the party to die.
Jubrin congratulated the party on its victory at the Supreme Court judgment delivered on July 12.
