Prince Uche Secondus will remain the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) until the national convention of the party is conducted in October.
The convention was initially scheduled to be conducted in December.
The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, confirmed this on Tuesday, at the end of a closed-door meeting of party stakeholders in Abuja.
Tambuwal said the members have agreed to work together.
He said: “This meeting has agreed that immediately a NEC meeting should be convened for the party to constitute the national convention planning committee and the national convention should be held latest by the end of October.
“As party members of the BoT, members of the governor forum, members of former governors forum, former ministers, former Senators, former Presiding officer of the National Assembly and various stakeholders, we are very happy to announce that we have discussed all matters and we have resolved to continue to work as a united family.
“Also, the zoning committee for the party should also be constituted by the same NEC immediately,” he said, adding that “the NEC of the party shall meet most likely next week and all the issues will be addressed.”
Secondus has been under increased pressure recently, with demands for his resignation coming from various quarters.
Going by the decision of the party, he will remain chairman until the convention planned for October.
