The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has announced the postponement of the party’s North West Zonal Congress earlier scheduled for November 20.
Naija News understands that the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, affirmed in a statement issued by its National Organising Secretary, Col. Austin Akobundu (retd.), on Wednesday in Abuja, that the Congress would no longer hold as earlier scheduled.
According to the statement, the congress was postponed indefinitely after extensive consultations.
The statement reads: “The decision was predicated on certain unforeseen circumstances that would very likely affect the conduct of the congress.
“The NWC urges all critical stakeholders, leaders and members of our party in the North West and indeed across the country to take note as new dates would be announced in due course,”
In other news, PDP has been evicted from the property which houses the party’s secretariat in Lagos State over unpaid rent.
It was learnt that the landlord of the property located at 56A Adekunle Fajuyi Road, GRA, Lagos claimed the party is owning rent running into several millions of naira.
However, in its immediate reaction, the Lagos PDP has described the development as sad and a grand plan to embarrass them.
