In a statement issued on Monday, the faction said the court decision is another act of judicial recklessness by the Honourable Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Okon Abang.

"We wish to however state that a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt Rivers State has earlier in the day given a comprehensive Order wherein the Honourable Judge specifically ordered the PDP to proceed with the convention as scheduled without hindrance. Indeed his lordship while given the Order mandated all relevant agencies including The Police, DSS and INEC to cooperate with the Party in organizing a hitch free National Convention," the statement explained.

"You may also wish to note that the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State gave an Interlocutory Order while Justice Okon Abang, Abuja, gave an Interim Order. The Order of Port Harcourt is clearly superior and earlier in time to the Interim Order given by Justice Okon Abang.

"In the light of the above, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a law abiding Party is obeying the Order of the Port Harcourt, Federal High Court until set aside by any competent Court of jurisdiction. In view of the above, the 2016 Repeat National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will continue as schedule
