The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has concluded its non-elective national convention, where it extended the tenure of the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee, NCC.
The four-month extension of the committee’s stay in office, which was due to end today – Saturday, was approved on Saturday afternoon by delegates from the nation’s 36 states and the FCT at the Eagle’s Square, Abuja.
The convention explained that the NCC tenure was extended to enable it to settle down and organise an elective national convention of the party later in the year.
With this extension, the tenure of the committee will be coming to an end on December 12, 2017.
Meanwhile, the convention approved a recommendation for the dissolution of the state executive committee in Anambra,as well as those of all the local governments and wards in the state, where governorship election will be held in November.
The convention also approved the dissolution of the state executive committees in Adamawa, Borno, Kebbi, Kwara, Osun, Lagos and Ogun states. Caretaker committees proposed by the NCC for all the states were also approved.
