Election Tribunal Manipulations: PDP Summons Emergency National Caucus

Olisa Metuh


THE national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has summoned an emergency meeting of the party’s national caucus to discuss the current onslaught against the party and its candidates in the last general elections, by the All Progressives Congress, APC-led federal government.

Olisa Metuh, PDP national publicity secretary, in a statement on Monday, October 26, said the caucus, which will meet on Thursday, October 29, would focus on the unrelenting schemes by the APC and its federal government to use some unpatriotic elements in the judiciary to advance their plot to take over states won by the PDP, particularly Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Delta, Taraba and Abia states.

“The national caucus meeting is in furtherance of the decision of the leadership of the party to fully activate its structures in stiff resistance to the manipulations, coercions and threats of the APC-led government, and in line with the unbending determination by the party not to, in any way whatsoever surrender any mandate freely given it to by the people at any level across the country, no matter the pressure,”  Metuh said.
