The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday, said that it would not hold the South-West zonal congress of the party originally scheduled for Saturday.

National Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo, who stated this while speaking to newsmen, said that the officers sent to Akure, the Ondo State capital, where the congress was originally scheduled to hold have already been recalled.

According to Oladipo, the decision to stop the congress was because of the order by Justice Ibrahim Buba of a Federal High Court in Lagos, which restrained the party from going ahead with its zonal congress.

He said, “We are a law-abiding party. I have been served the court order and as a respondent in the case, I’m telling you that we are not going to flout the order of the court.

“I’m also aware that the Independent National Electoral Commission will also not be at the congress.

“As a matter of fact, we are withdrawing our officers who have been sent to conduct the congress. We will stay action on it until the case if determined by the court.”
