The National Working Committee of the People’s Democratic Party has called an emergency national caucus meeting to code named ‘Expanded Caucus Meeting’ which it expects to use to get the support of its members to seek redress in court over the outcome of the presidential election.
The meeting, which will hold at the party secretariat in Abuja on Monday (today), will be presided over by Uche Secondus, its National Chairman who also confirmed the meeting in an interview with newsmen at the weekend.
A party source who spoke under conditions of anonymity said the NWC would brief the members about the outcome of the presidential and National Assembly elections and deliberate on the forthcoming governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections scheduled for March 9.
“We will deliberate on what happened on February 23 across the country and also hear from our agents.
“We will also expect our presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to brief us. The party will back him on his decision to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress in court over the outcome of the rigged election.
“We will also discuss Saturday’s governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.”
