THE Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared its support for the conduct of the national convention in Port Harcourt, today.
This is as the chairman of the national convention planning committee and Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, assured leaders of the PDP that he would continue to work for the survival of the party.
Speaking during a solidarity visit on Governor Wike at the Government House, Port Harcourt, on Tuesday, chairman of the BoT, Senator Wali Jubrin, said board members ,at their pre-convention, endorsed the contributions of the governor to re-position the party.
The BOT, according to a statement by the Special Adviser to Governor Wike on Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, stated that the appointment of Wike as the chairman of the convention planning committee was commendable, as it had helped to set up a worthwhile convention.
Senator Jubrin said all the leaders of the PDP were in Rivers State for the convention.
Responding, Governor Wike said members of the PDP must make sacrifices to ensure that the party moved forward.
At a press conference, Governor Wike said Nigerians had realised that their hope was in PDP.
He explained that all the organs of the PDP, including the national caretaker committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi had been around for the convention.
He told journalists that the convention would proceed because of the judgment of Federal High Court in Port Harcourt.
Wike said the order of Abuja court was interlocutory and inferior to that of Port Harcourt court.
