Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party has confirmed it will hold its eagerly-awaited special National Convention at the end of this month.

This follows a meeting in Abuja where the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party unanimously approved and ratified August 31 as the date for the event.

Tony Okeke, the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, confirmed the development.

He said the NEC also commended the special congresses and convention planning committee for the efforts so far put in place in the preparation for the convention.

The NEC also acknowledged the service of a court injunction restraining the conduct of the South-West Zonal congress earlier schedule for August 24, said Okeke.

He said the NEC unanimously approved the postponement of the South-West Zonal congress and ordered to set a new date for the event.

The NEC observed a minutes silence in honour of some officials of the party sent to conduct ward congress in Anambra State.

They died in a motor accident recently. The NEC also paid tribute to the Deputy speaker of Jigawa State House of Assembly Inuwa Sule Udi who also died in a road accident recently.
