PDP Resolves Leadership Crisis As Party Fixes Convention For October




The warring parties within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which are at one another’s throats over the continued leadership of the party by the embattled national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, have resolved their disagreements.

The groups in resolving the crisis, reconciled their differences, and agreed to form a formidable force, Naija News authoritatively reports.

The Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal announced the resolution of the crisis while briefing reporters in Abuja on Tuesday, shortly after a two-hour meeting of the party’s stakeholders.

Those present at the meeting to resolve the PDP crisis include 13 governors, the Board of Trustees members, Uche Secondus, and representatives of other organs of the party.

According to Tambuwal, part of the resolutions at the meeting was the bringing forward of the party’s national convention from December to October as an overt gesture to placate the group agitating for the immediate removal of Secondus.

He said, “This meeting has agreed that immediately a NEC meeting should be convened for the party to constitute the national convention planning committee and the national convention should be held latest by the end of October.

“As party members of the BoT, members of the governor forum, members of former governors forum, former ministers, former Senators, former Presiding officer of the National Assembly and various stakeholders, we are very happy to announce that we have discussed all matters and we have resolved to continue to work as a united family.

“Also, the zoning committee for the party should also be constituted by the same NEC immediately. The NEC of the party shall meet most likely next week and all the issues will be addressed.”
