The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday vowed to go ahead with its national convention in Port Harcourt, despite Thursday’s ruling of a Federal High Court, Abuja, restraining the party from organising the meeting.
The Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BOT), Dr. Walid Jibrin said this in Kaduna on Friday.
“We are yet to see any judgement suspending the national convention. Whichever way it is, if we decide to appeal and we are given accelerated hearing, nothing will stop the convention,” Walid Jibrin, said.
Jibrin told reporters that efforts to destroy the party by “internal and external forces” will fail.
He said: “It is bound to happen, challenges from both internal and external forces are bound to happen.
“We are engaging in genuine reconciliation and mediation that will make us come out stronger to win Edo and Ondo governorship polls, the rerun election in Rivers and capture power in 2019.
“We will get the judgment copy and study it and thereafter take necessary actions.
“But whoever is out to destroy our efforts, particularly the Edo primaries, God will not forgive such person because we have all the INEC documents authenticating the Edo primaries.”
“We have observed the interest purported to be shown by some people who are committed to killing PDP. We will X-ray the situation because we are opposition party dealing with issues that will help Nigeria rather than abusing individuals.
“The BoT is up to the task to resolve the problems after due consultation. God will not allow anybody to be used to destroy the party.”
