There is confusion over whether the planned national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party would take place as scheduled following the worsening conflict in the party.
As at 12:20pm on Saturday, the convention, scheduled to take place in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital had yet to commence with thousands of party members at a loss over what would happen.

Our correspondent gathered that stakeholders of the party were holding a last minute meeting at the Government House in Rivers.

At the Sharks Stadium, a huge crowd had streamed into the sports facility waiting for the national convention to commence.
