We are set for a successful convention of the PDP - Governor Okowa

APC afraid of holding national convention – Makarfi

"A person, who desires to rejoin the party after leaving it shall apply to his Ward Secretary for re-admission; and unless given a waiver by the National Working Committee, he will be placed on probation for a period of not less than one year". It is a good omen to everybody in the PDP.

Adeyeye called on President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate and ensure that the convention was not disrupted.

Adeyeye however said there was no truth in an allegation that some people wanted to tamper with the list, assuring that the list would be made available to the aspirants at least 48 hours before the convention.

"We are solidly behind him and those in his camp because Nigerians need him, the PDP needs him and the nation's democracy also needs him if it must endure and to redeem the dying Nigerian people".

It said this is because of the provision of the Constitution that deals with new entrants into the party.

"It is not from the very top".

In his response, Shagari praised PDP for its contributions to the building of democratic structures in the country.

"They know that if we have a hitch-free convention, it will mark the end of APC in power".

He urged Buhari to go the extra mile to ensure that the PDP convention was successful by providing sufficient security in and around the arena.

On his part, chairman of PDP's BoT, Sen Walid Jibrin, said "As the party joyfully welcomes Atiku back to his home PDP, we are equally waiting to receive more members of the APC, including Sen".

US troops may become targets after US Jerusalem decision - Iraqi paramilitary group
On Thursday, the Iraqi government demanded the United States reverse its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The alert, posted on December 6, is a " worldwide caution " that asks USA citizens to be on high-alert when traveling.

Chairman of the party in the state, Felix Obuah, who made this known at a briefing in Port Harcourt, said the party needs the experience of Secondus, who had made serious contributions to the party's growth.

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said the claim that the APC was afraid of conducting its convention "is an empty platitude" lacking in substance. They are doing everything possible to make sure that this convention is disrupted.

The former Nigerian leader expressed hope that "PDP will see one of the best convention like never before".

Earlier, Makar disclosed that the visit was in line with the tradition of the PDP where elders and leaders of the party are consulted for the right decisions to be taken.
