According to the notice of the meeting, those invited include members of the National Executive Committee, NEC, the Board of Trustees, BoT, National Assembly members, former governors of the PDP, former ministers under the platform of the party, former National Assembly members and party elders.

The notice signed by the faction’s spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, said all those invited to the meeting should attend “unfailingly as crucial party matters will be discussed.”
