The Enugu state Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who announced this at the end of the election also pronounced James Olukunle as the deputy chairman of the state’s PDP
Governor Seyi Makinde described the congress as historical, saying the party’s next national Congress would unite the entire country.
He called on the aggrieved members of the party to have a rethink and reunite with the part in the state.
Meanwhile, Michael Okunlade who emerged as the PDP Chairman of the aggrieved faction lamented that the governor had sidelined them in the affairs of the state.
He said the attention of the governor had been drawn to their grievances but he has refused to acknowledge their demands.
However, NAN reported that not less than 50 vehicles parked around the Jogor Centre, where the aggrieved faction held its congress, were vandalised by hoodlums.
The hoodlums, in their scores, armed with sticks and cutlasses, were, however, prevented by security operatives from entering the venue of the congress.
