The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced plans by the main opposition party to hold its much-awaited National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Saturday.

Kola Ologbondiyan, the party Publicity Secretary said this while speaking to the media on the outcome of its National Working Committee meeting, held in Abuja, on Thursday.

He said, among other things, that, “Elder Yemi Akinwonmi was unanimously affirmed as Acting National Chairman.

“We will be holding our caucus and another NWC meeting tomorrow preparatory to holding our National Executive Council meeting at 12 ‘O’clock on Saturday.“

On Wednesday, prominent party chieftains, including members of the National Working Committee (NWC) resolved to back Akinwonmi as acting chairman in accordance with party constitution.

Party youths under the aegis of the PDP Youths Movement, led by Salaudeen Lukman, also warned that the party might not bounce back to power in 2023, should the crisis persist.

According to a source, anti-Uche Secondus forces want the suspended national chairman to vacate office to prevent him from taking charge of the preparations for the convention, particularly the composition of the Convention Planning Committee.

It is believed that the composition of the Convention Committee will solidify Secondus’ influence and hold on the processes that will lead to the emergence of new National Working Committee (NWC) and National Executive Committee (NEC), the source added.
