Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), National Working Committee (NWC), has suspended all activities concerning the Special South West Zonal Congresses and the Special National Convention.
This is contained in a statement by Tony Okeke, the party`s Acting National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja on Monday.
According to the statement, the party`s NWC meeting considered issues surrounding recent developments in the party.
It resolved that its Special National Convention Committee should suspend all activities on special South-West zonal congresses and special national convention.
Okeke said that the decision was taken to ensure the regularisation of all anomalies and breaches that affected the party`s 2012 convention to forestall a repeat.
"All dates recently announced by the planning committee are in the circumstances untenable,’’ Okeke said.
He also said that the NWC resolved to invite major party stakeholders in Anambra to an enlarged stakeholders’ meeting on July 18.
The publicity secretary stressed that this would ensure the resolution of the protracted problems in the Anambra chapter of the party.
He further said that the meeting would commence consultations toward finding lasting solution to the problems of the party in the state.
The party`s spokesman added that this would lead the party to a successful governorship primary election in the state in 2015.
The NWC, he said, also viewed with concern recent developments in Rivers and resolved to invite the National Vice Chairman, South South, for a briefing.
Okeke noted that this would enable the party take an informed decision that would lead to a prompt resolution of the crisis in that state.
