The Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has said no court order has stopped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Convention scheduled for August 17, 2016 in Port Harcourt.
Wike, who said this yesterday, explained that the court was yet to hear the suit filed by Senator Ali Modu Sheriff challenging the national convention.
The governor, who was addressing the South-South Executive Committee of the PDP at the Government House, Port Harcourt, said “the court could not have sacked the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee because it cannot sit on appeal on the judgment of a court of coordinate jurisdiction.”
He added that there was an application to allow Senator Makarfi join as a party in the suit, noting that the suit had been adjourned to August 15.
He said the PDP leaders in the South-South geo-political zone would meet on Thursday to determine the zoning of positions.
Wike also said the Edo State chapter of the PDP would be supported to win the governorship election.
