PDP suspends National Working Committee meeting indefinitely

The Deputy National Chairman (South) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Elder Yemi Akinwomi on Tuesday, suspended the scheduled National Working Committee (NWC), meeting of the party till further notice.

In a statement signed by the Deputy National Chairman Elder Yemi Akinwomi on Tuesday, he said the immediate suspension followed the restraining order by a Harcourt Court, against the National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.

He said the Deputy National Chairman, South, Elder Akinwomi, acting on section 45 (2) of the PDP constitution took over the responsibility of presiding over the activities of the party and issued the directive.

According to the statement, the Constitutional section says, in absence of the National Chairman, the Deputy National Chairman South takes over the running of the party.

The statement explained that Elder Akinwomi has been recuperating from a protracted illness and had to sign his public announcement with a thumbprint publicly videoed.

”Our attention was drawn to a court order which purports to restrain our National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus from summoning and presiding over the meetings of the organs of the party,” the statement said

According to him, in the foregoing circumstance, as the Deputy National Chairman South of the Peoples Democratic Party, after due consultations and in the exercise of the aforesaid powers, I hereby deem it fit and proper to postpone the National Working Committee, NWC, meeting earlier scheduled for today till further notice to allow for broader consultations in the overall interest of our party.
