Some elements in Buhari's govt planning to disrupt our convention - PDP
Dec 08 2017 by Kathy Alvarado
Addressing newsmen in Abuja, PDP's National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the ex-VP would be part of the convention and would deliver a speech but will not vote because he was not qualified based on the provisions of the party's constitution. It is a good omen to everybody in the PDP. They are doing everything possible to make sure that this convention is disrupted.
This is even as PDP BoT chairman, Walid Jibrin, has said that the party is waiting for Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other Senators and members of the House of Representatives to return to its fold the way Atiku did. His room was never occupied, so we have opened it for him. We are not the APC, we are not afraid to hold convention.
The party, he said, would make available the list of accredited delegates to all aspirants at least 48 hours before the convention to diffuse the rumour that the list has been altered to suit selected aspirants.
Obuah said: "Our dear nation is now in a state of social decadence, economic strangulation and political quagmire for the singular reason that those presently in charge of her affairs are a bunch of incompetent, visionless and self-seeking people, who do not have what it takes to lead a great nation and a great people and redeem the dying hope of the Nigerian people".
The PDP spokesman didn't reveal the individuals involved in the alleged move to disrupt the convention.
He said, "I have here the chairman of the caretaker committee, former chairman of Kaduna State, the chairman of convention planning committee, the governor of Delta State with the offcials for the convention".

Okowa said: "A lot has been put on the ground for a successful convention to be held".
He also informed the PDP chieftain that he was aware of the allegations that some governors were trying to hijack the process, saying it was speculative and wrong.
Adeyeye further noted that Osun State would not participate in the national convention, adding that Anambra State was still under consideration due to disagreements in the state.
