PDP extends tenure of Caretaker Committee by 4 months 



The National Convention of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has extended the tenure of its National Caretaker Committee by four months.

The party said its decision to extend the tenure of the Makarfi-led committee till December is to enable it organise an elective national convention.

In the same vein, the party dissolved all executive committees at all levels in seven states namely: Lagos, Adamawa, Borno, Osun, Ogun, Kebbi and Kwara and constitute caretaker committees in the affected states.

The Party also ratified the dissolution of all factional executive committees in Anambra State at all levels and setting up of caretaker committees.

The development comes four days to expiration of the tenure of the Ahmed Makarfi-led committee. Specifically, the tenure of the committee would have ended on August 16, 2017.

This were some of the resolutions at the PDP Special Non-Elective National Convention in Abuja on Saturday.

According to the PDP Constitution, 2012 (as amended), National Convention is the highest decision making organ of the party.

Motion for the extension of the tenure of the National Caretaker Committee was moved by Senate Minority Leader and former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio and seconded by ex-Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido.

The National Caretaker Committee was constituted at the Port Harcourt National Convention on May 2016 with an initial tenure of three months. However, the tenure was extended for one year in August 2016.

Immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan, ex-Vice President Namadi Sambo, 11 PDP Governors, former ministers, governors, attended the event while the sacked National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu-Sheriff, was conspicuously absent.
