PDP suspends election into national offices

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Wednesday suspended the election into its national executive council, even though the national convention is still ongoing.


The convention now is to decide on appointing a new caretaker committee to pilot the affairs of the party or renew the tenure of the Makarfi-led caretaker committee, whose tenure expires this weekend.

Minority Leader of the House of Reps, Leo Ogor moved a motion for election into the national offices to be suspended and it was seconded by voice vote after which the majority carried the day.
