Olisa Metuh, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, stated this in Abuja on Thursday while briefing newsmen on the issue.
He blamed the controversy trailing the proposed conference being organised by Professor Jerry Gana on communication gap.
He said the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) felt it was necessary to suspend the propose conference as it was still awaiting the Sen. Ike Ekweremadu’s committee’s report on reconciliation of members, due for submission before the end of September.
It would be recalled that the party's NWC had in a statement on Wednesday by the National Secretary, Professor Adewale Oladipo, put the conference, which was to take place in October on hold.
Members of the organising committee of the conference, however, said the NWC has no power to suspend the conference.
