Controversy in PDP as Two Factions Hold Party Convention in Port Harcourt and Abuja
The leadership of PDP has been in a low key crisis until it took a different turn today as the two different factions of the party went their separate ways to hold party congresses in Abuja and Rivers state. While the Alimodu Sheriff led faction held its convention in Port Harcourt, the Professor Jerry Gana led Concerned Stakeholders group in the party held its own in Abuja.
However, the Alimodu led faction is supported by the 12 PDP governors in Nigeria. The two conventions are meant to produce key officials of the party.
On Thursday, the 19thof May, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, the Director of Voter Education and Publicity of INEC said that the party only recognizes the congress held in Port Harcourt.
