The party is however expected to amend that section of its constitution at the convention; and Atiku would be allowed to speak, even though he won't vote Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, will not vote at the convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which is scheduled to take place on December 9, Punch reports.

Among the positions in contention, the national chairmanship seat is the most coveted, as it has once again polarized the party along individual and group interests.

The petition added that Akobundu did not resign his position as vice chairman of the PDP in the zone when he was appointed as the Minister of State for Defence in 2014.

"He is no other than our very own, Prince Uche Secondus".

The People's Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday stated that former vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who recently returned to the PDP, will be barred from voting at the party's upcoming convention.

While it is settled that the position was zoned to the south, the party's leaders have pitched their tents accordingly to candidates from the zone.

Akpokabayen said a major challenge the party had in the past was the imposition of candidates who were not popular with the people.

According to Vanguard, he said "Any mistake we make in 2019 not to take PDP back to power will be a total disaster".

As a party that was nearly completely disintegrated by leadership crisis, it is inconceivable that it could allow another strife based on individual and group interests to divide it ahead of the next elections.

While he said that President Muhammadu Buhari was not part of the plot, he however called on him to urgently investigate the allegation and ensure that the convention was not disrupted by some "overzealous elements in the APC government".

He advised the would-be winners and losers to accept the outcome of the elections in the interest of all, saying, "Win or lose, we are still one family".

"They are afraid that if the PDP should hold a successful convention, that their days in government are numbered".
