Advertisement In a statement issued on Tuesday, Sani tackled PDP governors for saying the convention was “smooth and credible”. The governors made the comment in a communique issued at the end of their meeting on Monday. Some of the governors of the ruling party had called for his resignation during a meeting at the federal capital territory (FCT) on Sunday night. But Sani alleged that the convention was characterised by the violation of the PDP’s constitution and wondered why the forum was congratulating itself when some party stakeholders are awaiting court rulings on the matter.D. He said the communique “contains a misleading and deceptive statement intended to misdirect and prejudice the minds of discerning and genuine party members and the Justices of the Supreme Court that all is well within the party”. Advertisement Sani said the national convention was “unconstitutional,” alleging that Secondus was denied his right to exercise his mandate. “The PDP Governors requested the National Assembly to quickly conclude deliberations on the Electoral Act Amendment Bill either by overriding Mr President’s veto or deleting areas of complaints,” the communique reads.

“At this time that the matter is billed for adjudication by the apex court, it is foolhardy for an unconstitutional body to convene and rain accolades on themselves and a few accomplices that assisted in truncating a credible internal democracy,” the statement reads. Referring to the 2023 general election, Maduabum said the meeting is aimed at developing a credible process and plan for Nigeria’s positive rebirth. “Highly influential stakeholders with a large following like Dr. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso and a silent majority are awaiting the outcome of the judicial trial to chart their political future. Therefore for a pressure group to make bogus claims of having conducted a “smooth and credible” national convention is indeed heresy. “The PDP Governors are working in concert and consultations with other leaders of the party and in particular, the Senator Dr Iyorchia Ayu-led National Executive Committee of PDP to craft a credible process and programme for Nigeria’s positive rebirth. “It is a known fact that the entire exercise was characterized by flagrant violation of the party’s constitution which has resulted in litigations. The strategies to confront terrorists, kidnappers, bandits and other criminals is still a major problem of the APC administration,” the governors said.

How does a political party that hopes to reclaim power from an aggressive opponent like the APC build its foundation on nothing? “Unless the party builds its foundation on the rule of law and natural justice, its aspiration may be encumbered. For the avoidance of doubt, the issue as to the credibility or otherwise of the purported national convention is before the highest court of the land for determination, therefore it will be reckless and amount to a political subterfuge to copiously craft and disseminate a deceptive communique which seeks to breathe life to a dead action. Such an action cannot deter the cause and course of justice.” .
