The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Accreditation Sub-Committee, said efforts are ongoing to resolve litigations regarding the delegate’s list to the October 30 national convention of the party.

The Chairman of the Sub-committee and Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, stated this during the subcommittee’s meeting held on Tuesday in Abuja.

He said the party and its various committees for the convention are putting everything in place to ensure that the national convention is hitch-free.

Okowa assured that all issues regarding some states in court over conflicting delegates list will be amicably resolved.

“We are also trying to look at all the issues, including some people trying to stop some delegates at the court.

“But I think we are on top of all that, we will handle it and at the end of the day, by Thursday, we will have the total accredited number of delegates.

“So, I will give you the number of delegates when we meet on Friday morning.

“We are not worried about what is going on, we always have a way of resolving our issues and God is always with us.

“You can see that most of the positions and aspirants are unopposed. So that shows you that the party is on course for a successful National Convention,” Okowa said.

He said that in Ekiti and one other state, PDP still has issues of people contending in court as to whether some elected officials at the state should be on the list or not.

He said that the party’s legal adviser will offer his advice on how to go about the issue.

“We may likely not have conflicting delegates, but wherever we think that there is a court order, we have no choice than to exit those delegates.

“Except for the statutory delegates, who by their right and positions held in the past are not by reasons of election supposed to delegate,” he said.

Okowa said that no fewer than 3,000 delegates are expected at the national convention, adding that the delegates knew themselves.

Okowa also said the accreditation subcommittee was critical to the success of the party’s national convention, adding that the sub-committee is working hard to get it right.

“We do realise that if we get the process of accreditation right, we will largely have gotten the convention right. We do not pray that we get it wrong,” Okowa said.
