Although it has been difficult for his reconciliation committee to get the major gladiators at the centre of the PDP crisis to agree to sheath their swords, the former Senate President is determined to resolve all issues ahead of the National Convention.

However, the decision of Governor Nyesom Wike not to back down worries him. According to Punch newspaper, the former Senate is making final moves to ensure that the appeal court doesn't cancel the October national convention of the PDP.

In this article, we will be looking at moves David Mark is making to ensure that PDP national convention holds as scheduled. 

What are the final moves of David Mark to ensure that the PDP national convention is not cancelled? 

Recent development in the PDP shows that Uche Secondus is optimistic that the appeal court will give a judgment that will restore him as the national chairman of the PDP. The case is likely to be heard before October 30 when the PDP National Convention will take place.

David Mark is so much worried that his efforts in the last few weeks to ensure that the PDP National Convention goes as scheduled will be in vain if issues are not settled out of court. He plans to meet Governor Wike for the third time after his first and second meetings with him didn't yield results.

Wike insists he will not withdraw his court case that suspended Secondus as PDP national chairman. A situation that threatens PDP National Convention. Secondus appears to have the upper hand because he knows the appeal court may cancel the National Convention of PDP and order that he resumes office as PDP National Chairman.

The court may give judgment base on the PDP constitution which states that the National Chairman can only be removed by the NEC of the party. 

This development worries David Mark and that is why he plans to meet Wike with some top PDP members to appeal to him to save the party from further crisis and withdraw his court case against Secondus.

Uche Secondus is ready to withdraw his court case but Wike is not ready. He wants to tactically keep Secondus off the PDP national convention.
