Despite Makinde’s Threat, PDP Postpones Zonal Congress by Sakamaje: 6:43pm On Apr 07
Despite threats by Governor Seyi Makinde, the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has postponed the Southwest Zonal Congress of the party pending the determination of a case filed at a Federal High Court in Lagos.

Justice C J. Aneke of Lagos Federal High Court had on January 19, 2021, ruled that status quo ante Bellum be maintained pending the determination of the originating summons in a suit number FHC/L/CS/63/2021 filed by some leaders of the party challenging the venue of the congress.

The applicants are seeking an order of the court directing that the zonal congress be held in Abeokuta, a neutral state and the Ogun State capital.

However, in a letter addressed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) dated March 31, 2021, and reportedly signed by Uche Secondus, the PDP National Chairman, a new date, April 10, 2021, was purportedly fixed for the congress, with Ibadan, the Oyo State Capital as the venue.

This deepened the warring members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP as many of them kicked against the said date because of the subsisting order of the court restraining the party from going ahead with the congress pending determination of the case.

A source at the meeting of NWC of the PDP said that after a long deliberation over the issues, considering the consequences of disobeying a court order as an opposition party, the PDP decided to ignore the threat by Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and postponed the southwest Zonal Congress till after the determination of the suit before the law court.

OYOINSIGHT recalls that Makinde had threatened that there will be “dire consequences” if the South-West zonal congress did not hold on Saturday, April 10, 2021, at Ibadan.

The threat by the Governor was made following early signs that indicated that the congress will be postponed.

I agree that it will be unwise to hold the congress against a court order
But Fayose needs to stop being a clog in the wheel of success.
How can you be dragging leadership with a sitting governor?
Something he would never have allowed while he was governor.
The man is sick

Fake news..NL will not confirm any news but rush to push it to the FP.. I am not surprised,there is a Gang up on nairaland to always paint seyi black. It is always Negative news that make the FP here

As of now it hasnt been postponed. A statement was earlier released today in which the saraki led team is to reconcile seyi and fayose within 24hours.. The congress as of now has not been postponed.. Below is the statement..

"Opposition Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday, moved to settle the differences between former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose; and Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, within 24 hours.

This was contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

Of late, the leadership of the South-West arm of the PDP has been embroiled in crisis with Fayose and Makinde at the centre of the ruckus.

Makinde, a first term governor, is the only PDP governor in the South-West zone while the other five states in the region are ruled by the governors of the All Progressives Congress.

The leadership tussle between Makinde and Fayose has since generated verbal confrontations.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that Fayose threatened to “work against” Makinde in the 2023 elections if the Oyo governor continues to “disrespect” him.

However, in the statement titled, ‘NWC Moves to Ensure Reconciliation, Smooth South West Zonal Congress’, Ologbondiyan said PDP leadership and the committee led by former Senate President Bukola Saraki will reconcile the two party chieftains.

The statement read, “The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party after an extensive meeting has scaled up processes for reconciliation and as it affects South West Zonal Congress of the party.

“The NWC resolved as follows:

“That beyond the legal conundrum in our party’s formation in the zone, the PDP must win the South West.

“Consequent upon this, the NWC further resolved that a meeting comprising of the National Chairman, the Deputy National Chairman, the National Secretary, the Senator Bukola Saraki-led Reconciliation and Strategic Committee, Governor Seyi Makinde and former Governor Ayo Fayose, be held immediately for urgent resolution of all issues concerning the South West.

“The NWC will meet on the outcome of this reconciliation meeting within the next 24 hours.”

It's obvious Makinde is not a good politician by Nigerian standards.

He should focus on governance if he still wants a second term, those who played the politics for him in 2019 now have their backs against him.
