An interval of music execution by Nigerian music sensation, Davido has helped to ease troubled representatives as the postponement in the ongoing accreditation of delegates changes the time table at the ongoing PDP National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers state. The convention occurring at the Adokiye Amasiamaka Stadium, Igwuruta Aile, close Port Harcourt should have advanced at 7pm into a session for presidential aspirants to deliver delegates prelude to voting to pick possible candidate, however up until this point, accreditation is yet to be finished up.
The introduction of Davido into the platform breathed life into the weary faces of overflowing, officials and authorized delegates sitting in the long waiting area at the main bowl of the Adokiye Amasiamaka Stadium where voting is relied upon to hold later. Davido sang his hit tunes including Assurance, Skelewo, Fall, If among others, sending numerous in the stadium running from their seats to the platform.
Pickpockets have confiscated Port Harcourt based journalist, Udede Jim-Opiki, and an unidentified policeman of telephones and undisclosed money as the Planning Committee and delegates were delayed at the ongoing PDP National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers state. The two had the sad experience in the rush as fans and admirers flooded towards Nigerian music sensation, Davido when he surfaced at the Adokiye Amasiamaka Stadium setting of the convention.
Jim narrated, “At the entrance of the venue at that odd moment, security men could not organize the delegates and other interested participants in an orderly manner. They closed the gate and were letting in only co-security personnel and their principals. Meanwhile, the crowd was growing because more persons were coming. Soon, it became a pushing game where the more you pushed, the closer you got to the entrance and maybe with a little help, you could go inside.
“Boy, it was a struggle and even shoes got cut. Sweating and smelling bodies got too close and the evil-minded among them went to work. Ironically, even a policeman’s phone was also stolen in the mix. He was heard shouting Oh, my phone, my phone ooo.”
Unexpectedly, Davido who was unmindful of the episode had been acquainted to perform at the platform as already accredited delegates anticipate the planning committee to begin the characterizing period of the primaries starting with presentation of the aspirants. Then, rumours from the Governor Okowa headed Convention Planning Committee, show that the delay in the activity is because of horse trading among delegates and aspirants in the desire for arrangements in a few aspirants stepping down for other people.
