The spokesman of the Ahmed Makarfi led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dayo Adeyeye, slammed Justice Okon Abang for issuing an order suspending its national convention slated for August 17, 2016.

Premium Times reports that Adeyeye said the action by Justice Abang, was a show of his judicial recklessness.

Despite the court order, the Makarfi led PDP insists the national convention will still hold.

Adeyeye also said the Federal High Court in Rivers State had earlier issued an order giving the PDP the go-ahead to hold its convention.

Adding that “The order of Port Harcourt is clearly superior and earlier in time to the interim order given by Justice Okon Abang. In the light of the above, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a law abiding Party is obeying the Order of the Port Harcourt, Federal High Court until set aside by any competent Court of jurisdiction.

“In view of the above, the 2016 Repeat National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will continue as scheduled as we welcome all Delegates, Party leaders, other critical stakeholders, INEC monitoring team and other friends of PDP to Port Harcourt, Rivers State while wishing all our members and supporters a successful national convention.”

The embattled PDP chairman Ali Modu Sheriff has vowed not to let the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike and his Ekiti counterpart, Ayo Fayose hijack the party.
