The Chairman of National Caretaker Committee, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, said there were five failed attempts to stop Saturday’s non-elective national convention of the party.
Makarfi disclosed this at the opening ceremony of the 75th National Executive Committee meeting of the PDP held on Friday at the party national Secretariat in Abuja.
He said the purpose of the meeting was to enable the NEC members review events across the country.
Makarfi said: “At least there were four or five attempts to this convention through the court but as God will have it we overcame all those attempts.
“Some people never give up. We must not think that we are out of the woods. People will continue with legal minds in our paths.
“We are going to overcome that with our resilience and to do the needful.”
The Governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, pledged the party’s governors’ commitment and submission to PDP decisions.
He urged all NEC members to embrace the spirit of new beginning for the party to make Saturday’s convention a success.
The Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees (BOT), Sen. Wali Jubrin, assured that the board would not allow the party to die.
