PDP in disarray as governors hold emergency meeting to resolve crisis.


Following the resignation of 7 national officers of the major opposition party in the country, The people’s Democratic Party (PDP), Governors elected on the platform Party have scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss the crisis rocking the party. 

It would be recalled that Seven deputy national officers of the opposition party resigned on Tuesday in protest against what they called “poor leadership”.

According to the national officers , they resigned owing to what they described had as lack of financial transparency in the party’s leadership.

However, despite their resignation, the officers promised to remain loyal to the PDP, but said they will not be able to work with the current national working committee (NWC).

This disarray is coming amid the defection of major stakeholders in the party over the past months.

Reacting to the development , Sokoto state Governor Aminu Tambuwal, and chairman of the PDP governors’ forum, in a statement issued on Tuesday, said the governors are saddened over the development.

Tambuwal, who did not state the date of the meeting, appealed to aggrieved members to remain calm.

“The Governors hereby call on all members of the party and indeed all stakeholders to remain calm in the face of the developments,” the statement reads.

“We plead with all aggrieved persons and those with the interest of the PDP at heart to keep their gun powder dry, as efforts are being made in consultation with members of the PDP Board of Trustees and other stakeholders to resolve all contending issues.

“To this end, the PDP Governors’ Forum has scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss the affairs of the Party and the way forward.

“The PDP, as the only remaining hope of the nation for good governance, must show an example to Nigerians and also take advantage of the current disarray in the APC and its rudderless government.”

Meanwhile, the PDP leadership, on Tuesday, said it has activated  an “internal conflict resolution mechanism” to reconcile aggrieved members of the party.
