Speaking with the PDP NEC member, commissioned to conduct the parallel congress of Chief Chris Uba ‘s led faction, Alhaji Abubakar Mallam expressed disappointment in the demeanor of the chairman of the committee disappearance in the middle of their journey to conduct the exercise in Anambra, only to be aware that another faction of the PDP in the state had hijacked them to conduct a parallel exercise for the party in the state.

In an interview with PDP stakeholders in the Chief Chris Uba  led faction, senator Anme Okonkwo and Honorable John Emeka condemned in strong terms the position of perceived  hijack of congress committee members commissioned by PDP NEC to conduct state congress in that state by some PDP stakeholders in the state, but assured that the position of the party constitution was followed,  as observed in their conduct of the congress,. He sited the supreme court judgement which affirmed that dew process of the law of the party should be followed to produce any party executives
