Abuja - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has summoned an emergency meeting of the party’s national caucus in the wake of unfavourable outcomes in the election tribunals.
Losses have either been confirmed or reported in Abia, Akwa-Ibom, Delta, Rivers and Taraba States, which the opposition party controlled.
Following the recent disappointments, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the caucus will meet in Abuja on Thursday.
The aim, he said, would be to discuss "unrelenting schemes by the All Progressives Congress and its Federal Government to use some unpatriotic elements in the judiciary to advance their plot to take over states won by the PDP."

Metuh added the meeting was to fully activate the party structures in stiff resistance to the alleged manipulations, coercions and threats of the APC-led government.
He said this was in line with the determination by the party "not to surrender any mandate freely given it by the people at any level across the country, no matter the pressure."
The elections held earlier this year are the source of tensions.
APC this week denied influencing judges to rule in its favour at the poll tribunals.
