The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party has gone ahead with its meeting.
The NWC has also fixed the National Executive Committee meeting of the party for Friday this week.
It may be recalled that the ailing Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party, Yemi Akinwonmi, had announced the postponement of the NWC meeting earlier 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, Uche Secondus.
However, Nine members of the National Working Committee of the party under the leadership of the Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Suleiman Nazif, in defiance of an earlier announcement by Akinwonmi, held a meeting and announced that an emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the party would hold on Friday.
Headline News365 had earlier reported that following the restraining order issued against the National Chairman, Uche Secondus, by a Rivers High Court in Port Harcourt on Monday, the party national chairman position became vacant.
