ABUJA—APPARENTLY angry that having spent some days in Jeddah and were blocked from seeing ailing President Umaru Yar’Adua who has been away since 23 November 2009, the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has decided to wait and see if the six-man team dispatched by the Federal Executive Council would suffer a similar fate.

As gathered yesterday in Abuja, members of the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party may have adopted to play the waiting game on the decision of FEC and report back on his true state of health.

According to the source, “we are watching, waiting eagerly to see the outcome of the planned trip. If the latest delegation go to Saudi and return with the same message of denial of access to the President, then the party may have to take a new step. The direction of the step to be taken by the party, honestly, I don’t know, but I know that something definitely will happen”.

The source said further that the party hierarchy decided to wait against the backdrop that it was not in any way prepared to get involved in the move by the FEC for now, just as it preferred to wait for the return of the team before deciding on the next line of action.

According to the source, members of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, who were unofficially briefed on what transpired in Saudi Arabia between the President’s family and the PDP team that went to Saudi were not too happy with the way and manner the National Chairman, Prince Vincent Ogbulafor, the Deputy National Chairman, Bello Haliru Mohammed and the Deputy National Secretary, Musa Babayo were treated.
