Aggrieved PDP aspirants threaten to form parallel national exco

December 14, 2017

Some aggrieved aspirants under the aegis of PDP Candidates and Stakeholders Forum, yesterday, rejected the results of last Saturday’s national convention of the party which produced Mr Uche Secondus as national chairman. 

They also called on Chairman of Board of Trustees (BoT), Mr Walid Jibrin, to call an emergency meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).

‎Mr Franklyne Edede, who contested for the office of PDP National Youth Leader and Mr Godwin Duru, who contested for the office of National Organising Secretary, said the meeting was necessary to address contentious issues. 

Mr Obi-Nwosu Emmanuel, Mr Hassan Adamu and Mr Mohammed Abubakar also appended their signatures on the document as stakeholders. 

‎”We the concerned candidates and stakeholders hereby reject in totality the result released at the 9th December, 2017 National Elective Convention instead of the true result.

“We, therefore, demand immediate ‎recall of the purported result of the actual votes cast by delegates at the convention.

“We call on Chairman of ‎BoT to ensure the immediate execution of this demand by convening an emergency NEC meeting within 7 days from the date of this notice. 

“Failure to address the items‎ above, we would have no option but to announce the correct results and inaugurate the authentic National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP,” they said. 

However, BoT Chairman, Mr Walid Jibrin didn’t respond to a phone call and a text message sent to him at the time of filing this report.
