The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is currently holding its 86th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
The meeting which started at about 4:28 pm on Thursday is holding at the party’s Secretariat, Wadata Plaza Abuja.
In his opening address at the meeting, National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, stated that the country is in distress.
Naija News reported that the meeting is expected to discuss the National Assembly election.
Recall that some members of the National Assembly elected under the platform of the PDP disobeyed the party’s directive to vote Senator Ali Ndume and Umar Bago as Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives respectively.
The party had said it took the decision to support the duo after very extensive consultations with critical stakeholders.
However, results from the vote showed that some lawmakers under the PDP voted Senator Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila as leaders of the 9th Assembly.
