Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, the Chairman of National Caretaker Committee, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said there were five failed attempts to stop the Saturday non-elective national convention of the party.

Makarfi disclosed this at the opening ceremony of the 75th PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party held at the party national secretariat on Friday in Abuja.

He said that the purpose of the meeting was to enable the NEC members to review all the happening across the country.

“At least there were four or five attempts to this convention through the court but as God will have it we overcame all those attempts.

”So the convention will hold tomorrow.

“Some people never give up. We must not think that we are out of the woods. People will continue< with legal minds in our paths.

“We are going to overcome that with our resilience and to do the needful,” Makarfi said.

The Governor of Ekiti and PDP Governors’ Forum, Mr Ayodele Fayose, also speaking at the meeting, pledged the forum’s commitment and submission to PDP decisions.
