PDP holds convention, extends Makarfi-led committee’s tenure


THE People Democratic Party has extended the tenure of the Senator Ahmed Markarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the party by one year.

Delegates of the party, who gathered at the Rivers State PDP Secretariat on Wednesday, took the decision as a result of the seal-off of the Sharks Stadium, Port Harcourt; venue of the party’s botched National Convention.

The extension of the tenure of the Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the PDP also came on the heels of the suspension of the election of national officers of the party.
Motion for the extension of Makarfi’s Caretaker Committee’s tenure was moved by the Deputy Senate President, Mr. Ike Ekweremadu.

A member of the party and the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Mr. Leo Ogor, had earlier moved a motion for the suspension of the election of national officers of the party.

The motion was, however, seconded by Yunusa Suleiman, who is the Chairman of the 36 State Chairmen of the PDP across the country.

The PDP noted that the extension of Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the PDP would pave the way for the party to exhaust all cases pending in court.

Delegates also agreed that the chairman of the committee would not vie for any elective position in the party at the expiration of the one year added to its tenure.

Makarfi, in his acceptance speech pledged to sustain the rebuilding of the PDP, reuniting its members and restoring the lost glory of the party.
