Information reaching us from the PDP Special Convention holding at the Eagle square Abuja shows that the ruling party may be heading for implosion.

Aside the free for all fight between the Andy Uba’s loyalists and those of Nwike at the appearance of the former to the venue, report also indicates that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar also walked out of the convention with 8 Governors in an apparent show of dissatisfaction over the level of preparations and the politicking surrounding the convention.

According to DayBreak Editorial crew covering the event, “Atiku left the Eagles Square venue alongside Governors of Rivers, Kwara,
Kebbi, Sokoto, Adamawa, Jigawa, Niger and Kano with their party loyalists to Yar'Adua Centre where a parallel mini Convention is currently taking place”.

The report also shows that the Atiku-led convention has seen the emergence of the former Acting National Chairman of PDP Alhaji Abubakar Baraje as the new National Chairman while the Former Governor of Osun State and erstwhile National Secretary, Col. Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Rtd) was elected as the new National Secretary of the party.

As at the time of filing this report, the Atiku-led convention is posed to elect other national officers of the party even as the Governors vow to open a new PDP National Secretariat on Monday.

Meanwhile, the Bamanga Tukur-led convention at the Eagle Square is yet to produce list of the officials as elections are currently going on with National Delegates casting their votes accordingly.
