There is confusion within the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) as nine members of the National Working Committee (NWC) held a meeting on Tuesday.
At the meeting, the NWC members also fixed the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party for Friday, August 27.
The Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party, Yemi Akinwonmi, had earlier announced the postponement of the NWC meeting scheduled for today “until further notice to allow for broader consultations in the overall interest of our party.”
He had announced a takeover of the reins of the party following a restraining order on the National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.
But nine members of the NWC under the leadership of the Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Suleiman Nazif, in defiance of the earlier announcement made by Akinwonmi, held a meeting and announced that an emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the party would hold on Friday.
