    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had concluded plans to disrupt its convention slated for Saturday and Sunday, in Port Harcourt.

    The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbinduyan made the allegation at a press conference held at the party’s national secretariat Thursday, in Abuja.

    “There are plots by the ruling party to disrupt our national convention. We are aware of the machinations of the ruling party which is afraid of the election to halt the efforts of the opposition to elect a candidate to go into a contest with President Muhammadu Buhari,” Ologbondiyan claimed.

    When asked to give details about the plot, the opposition spokesman said, “It can be any form of machination; it could be by court, or any other form and we are alerting Nigerians of the efforts to stop our national convention.”

    He however said no force or any form of intimidation would stop the PDP from electing its presidential candidate as scheduled.

    He said the party has written to all formations of government notifying them of the convention slated for Port Harcourt. He added that accreditation for participants would be done in Port Harcourt.

    In a related development, our correspondent gathered that all organs of the party have concluded plans to meet with all the presidential aspirants and key stakeholders of the party ahead of the convention.

    The essence of the meeting, Daily Trust learnt was to pave way for the aspirants to interact in order to ensure a hitch-free exercise and ensure there is no post-convention crisis.
