ROYAL NEWS understands that the emergency meeting will address a petition by a party member, Kassim Afegbua, to anti-graft agencies demanding a probe of PDP finances.
However, a top party official revealed that the NEC meeting had nothing to do with Afegbua’s petitions.
He said: “The emergency NEC is to enable the party to take decisions on issues relating to its congresses nationwide.”
He added that the party has not been able to conduct its congresses in the North West and few states because of intra-party crises.
Meanwhile, Afegbua said there was no going back in his quest to have the anti-graft agencies investigate the party’s finances.
Afegbua said to journalists on Wednesday, at a press briefing in Abuja, that he was not alone in the call for the probe.
“People in the NWC, NEC, the party’s governors, and other key stakeholders are with me on this journey.
“I am just the one holding the flag, should the EFCC and ICPC delay in doing the investigation, I will have no other alternative than to apply for a request for mandamus to urge them to make the appropriate action,” he said
