The PDP has commenced its South-South Congress in Port Harcourt despite a restraining order of the Calabar High Court.

Addressing reporters on Tuesday in Rivers State, the Chairman of the South-South Governors’ Forum and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa said the party is getting ready to take over power at the national level in 2023.

He, however, didn’t make any mention of the court order.

At 1:56 pm, the national legal officer of the party moved a motion to dissolve the tenure of the current zonal executives, to pave the way for the election of the new executive.
