The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday, convened its 78th emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja.
The NEC meeting is currently holding at the national secretariat of the PDP, Wada Plaza, Wuse, Abuja.
Among those attending the meeting are former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, and former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido.
The meeting is coming less than two weeks after Atiku called on the PDP to focus on “rebuilding and strengthening” the party “for the challenges ahead of us rather focusing on elections at this early period.”
THE WHISTLER reports that the PDP has been making efforts to get its feet back on ground after most of its bigwigs who vied for various political offices in the last general elections lost out.
The likes of its 2019 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, former senate president, Bukola Saraki, had lost their political bids while Senator Dino Melaye and most recently, former Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, lost their seats to election appeals.
Hon. Yakubu Dogara had also lost his position as speaker in the national assembly in the aftermath of his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition party ahead of the 2019 general elections.
