The embassy move breaks with decades of USA policy and risks igniting a " powder keg " in the Middle East region, analysts say. "There will be no meeting with the vice president of America in Palestine", diplomatic adviser Majdi al-Khaldi told AFP .

The ruling party stated this in reaction to the just concluded PDP convention.

"We, therefore, have a very big task of retrieving this nation from APC over its clear lack of direction and confusion starting with the presidency".

Since Secondus emerged as the PDP Chairman, Governor Fayose has said nothing about the election.

Also speaking the chairman of the convention Electoral Committee and former governor of Benue state, Gabriel Suswam, described the exercise as "the first ever transparent election by PDP", noting, "in the past, the president would speak and the rest would follow".

According to Ihedioha who was also the 2015 Imo PDP, gubernatorial candidate, his conviction was based on the abilities of the newly elected national officers of the party.
