Ahead of the Saturday October 30th National Convention of the People’s Democratic Party, the Organising Committee Chairman Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and his Deputy Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State have been inspecting facilities at the Eagle Square venue on Tuesday.
The Committee Chairman was at the Square to see things for himself and assess the readiness of the sub committees towards the conduct of the convention.
At hand to receive and brief the Chairman and his Deputy were sub committee Chairmen of electoral, venue, security, protocol, accreditation and transport.
Governor Fintiri commended the sub committees for working hard to ensure the success of the exercise.
“You have worked hard and I must commend your zeal and determination to reposition the party and give her a fresh breath”. Governor Fintiri said.
After conducting the Organising Committee Chairman round, they promised not to let him down, describing his passion to deliver a credible and successful Convention as encouraging to both committees and members of the PDP family.
They could not hide their satisfaction with the way and manner the Chairman and his team have been spearheading the process.
They noted that Governor Fintiri has proven that there is still hope for Nigeria by his strategic leadership in steering a more organised Convention.
From the convention ground, the Organising Committee Chairman led other members to condole with the family of Senator Phillip Aduda the venue sub committee Chairman over the loss of his father the Rt Reverend Taminus Aduda Bishop Emeritus of the Anglican Diocese of Gwagwalada.
The 76th year old Aduda Patriach died on 20th October 2021 after a brief illness.
While commiserating with Senator Aduda and the family, Governor Fintiri who described the deceased as a proud father who raised great children that have contributed to the growth and development of the nation, urged the family to take solace in God and bear the irreparable loss.
He said the late Bishop will be sorely missed especially when his wise counsel is most needed.
