SAN FRANCISCO, January 03, (THEWILL) – A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), under the aegis of Concerned Candidates and Stakeholders of the PDP, has revealed that it would inaugurate members of its National Working Committee (NWC) on January 22.
The faction, also known as FRESH PDP, claimed it had proscribed the Pdp Governors Forum, which it described as oppressive and retrogressive.
Emmanuel Obi-Nwosu, Director-General of the faction, made this known at a press conference which held at the faction’s secretariat located in the Asokoro District of Abuja.
Obi-Nwosu, who denied that his group was working against the ongoing peace process within the party, insisted that the action of his group was one of the major means of resolving internal dispute.
“Finally, the inauguration of the authentic National Working Committee of our great party will take place on Monday, the 22nd day of January, 2018,” he said.
“This is to enable all members of the NWC, who travelled out for holidays, to return.
“Only organs of the party as duly recognised by the party’s Constitution shall henceforth function as stipulated in the constitution.
“To this end, the hitherto oppressive and retrogressive anti-democratic PDP Governors Forum, which is completely alien to the party’s constitution, is hereby proscribed.
“No more shall our party entertain any form of list, whether unity or divisive. The party constitution shall be followed to the letter in the conduct of all future party elections.”
