Nigeria’s opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has submitted a tentative date of October 30-31st, 2021 for its national convention.
The decision to submit the provisional date was taken by the National Caucus of the PDP.
Aminu Tambuwal, Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, announced this after the National Caucus meeting of the party in the nation’s capital Abuja on Friday.
“We have just risen from our 40th meeting of the national caucus of our great party, the PDP, where we have resolved to submit to the NEC of our party tomorrow recommendation from the national working committee for the National Convention of our party, to be held between Friday, 30th of October to Saturday, 31st of October,” Tambuwal said as he read the resolution of the caucus meeting.
He added that “The venue will be determined tomorrow by NEC.
“Also, this distinguished body had empanelled eight distinguished leaders of our party under the able leadership of ex-President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, to interface with our leaders who are involved in these issues of court, so that all court matters can be now withdrawn and then for normalcy to continue to return to the party.
“I appeal on behalf of this body to all well-meaning members of our party in the interest of the party to shield their sword and let us embrace peace because Nigeria is waiting for PDP, and I believe that we have the capacity to resolve whatever issues we have internally.”
