The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the party’s national convention will now hold before the end of October.
The convention was initially scheduled for December.
Sokoto State Governor and chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, disclosed this on Tuesday, after a closed door meeting of the party’s stakeholders in Abuja.
Speaking on the internal crisis rocking the party, Tambuwal said the members have agreed to work together.
“We are very happy to announce that we have discussed all matters and we have resolved to continue to work as a united family,” Tambuwal said.
The national chairman of the party,Uche Secondus, has been under immense pressure to resign from office.
But going by the decision of the party, he will remain in the position until the convention planned for October.
The 13 governors elected on the platform of the party, members of the national assembly, former ministers, former senate presidents, former governors, and other party stakeholders were present at Tuesday’s meeting.
Speaking at the meeting, Waji Jubrin, chairman, PDP Board of Trustees, Walid Jibrin, said the presence of the governors show that the party is committed to ending the crisis.
Jubrin advised party stakeholders to put aside personal interest and deliberate on the issues that will benefit the party.
Also speaking, Secondus, said the party belongs to everyone and can reinvent itself at any point, adding that Nigerians are looking up to PDP to succeed the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The stakeholders subsequently went into a closed-door session for about an hour, after which the rescheduled convention date was announced.
