After two successive National Conventions aborted by the court, the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has bowed to the whims and caprices of the embattled Factional Chairman, Ali Modu-Sheriff.

The party directed the party’s National Caretaker Committee, to work towards holding the next Convention in Abuja.

It would be recalled that the two aborted Conventions were held in Port Harcourt, the capital, under the total control of Governor .

Also, the BoT called for the constitution of a new Convention Planning Committee, so as “to ensure a credible, transparent, free and fair convention”.

All these were part of the terms and conditions offered by Sheriff, for peace to return to the PDP.
The decisions were reached at a four-hour meeting of the board, held on Monday, August 29, in Abuja.
