“As you are already aware, a section of the state executive leadership of the party convened an unauthorized meeting on Thursday, March 9, the decision of which almost rocked the party”, Usman-Kankia explained.
“An emergency exco meeting comprising 19 out of 29 members was conveyed to discuss the immediate and remote causes of the illegal meeting.
“Facts have emerged that the illegal meeting was unconstitutionally convened without the consent of the state executive committee.
