Nasarawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is yet in another internal crisis as disagreement trails the just concluded ward, local governments and state congresses of the party in the state.
In statement signed by senator Philip Gyunka and Mohammed Ibaku, Director General ((DG) and Secretary of Sidi Bako Campaign Organisation and made available to newsmen in Lafia, the campaign organization expressed dissatisfaction over what they described as purported party congress.
“We feel the pains and disappointment of our members, because the rescheduled congresses were ordered by a court to address the grievances that led to earlier litigations because of similar infringements of our members’ rights at the earlier congress that was held in March, 2020.
“The campaign organisation hereby wishes to inform all our supporters and esteemed party members at large, that it has taken appropriate steps and measures to seek redress of these breach of trust and our party guidelines and constitution in the conduct of our congresses by those who were given responsibilities to enthrone sanity in our congress process.
“What happened in the name of our party congresses that was held at some wards, local governments, and the state levels, between 7th, 9th and 12th November, 2020 was a show of shame,” it added.
The campaign organization while assuring that the party at the state level would set up a high powered committee of elders of the party with the view of reconciling aggrieve members, went on to direct the party Chairmen in the 13 Local Government Areas (LGA) to begin reconciliation meeting in their respective LGAs.
The campaign organisation therefore called on their supporters across the state to remain calm and not to take any hasty decision detrimental to the development of the party.
