Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has said there is no court order barring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from holding its National Convention.
The programme is scheduled for August 17, 2016 in Port Harcourt.
According to Wike, the court was yet to hear the suit filed by Senator Ali Modu Sheriff challenging the national convention.
Speaking while addressing the South-South Executive Committee of the PDP at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Wike said “the court could not have sacked the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee because it cannot sit on appeal on the judgment of a court of coordinate jurisdiction.”
He pointed out that there was an application to allow Senator Makarfi join as a party in the suit, noting that the suit had been adjourned to August 15.
Wike added that the PDP leaders in the South-South geo-political zone would meet on Thursday to determine the zoning of positions.
