Reacting to reports that the National Working Committee, NWC of the party plans to conduct ward congresses in Enugu today, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh said that the National leadership has not cancelled any ward congress in any State, including Enugu State, just as he explained that appeal panels were set up where members could lay their complaints after the congresses.

He said: “No state congress has been canceled in Nigeria by the National Working Committee, NWC; the NWC has no right to outrightly cancel the ward congresses when it has not received report from the appeal panels.
