In a come-back move, a faction of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), ‘Fresh PDP’ has constituted members of its interim National Working Committee (NWC) to lead the party before convocation of elective convention.

This is coming barely two weeks after some leaders of the faction declared in a press conference that the faction had collapsed and submitted to the main party, a move which the factional Director General denied.

In a statement on Friday, the Chairman of the National Working Committee, Chief Obi-Nwosu Emmanuel explained that the committee would liaise with all the 36 state Caretaker Chairmen to ensure the immediate commencement of electronic membership registration so as to provide an authentic register for elective convention.

He urged all members of the party to avail themselves the opportunity to robustly participate in the process of re-branding the party.

According to him, fresh PDP represent everything that Nigerians wish to see in a re-branded party that seek to return to power in 2019.

He further said that the objective of the fresh PDP was to promote the party’s first ideology, which placed interest above every other.

“We are sincerely convinced that with our determination to annihilate impunity and imposition from our great party and our resolve to ensure level playing ground for all potential aspirants on the platform of the party.

“Impunity and imposition will never do our party any good. They both represent the proverbial ill-wind that blows no one any good and we will not allow opportunities to destroy what other noble men like late Dr Alex Ekwueme laboured hard to build.

“PDP belongs to all financially up-to-date members and everyone must have the constitutional liberty to use the platform for the advancement of his or her political aspiration without let or hindrance.

“Today our faction of the People’s Democratic Party has come out with a clear blueprint on how to quickly restore the lost confidence of our party members in the party and win back the support of Nigerians.”

Emmanuel listed members of the NWC to include: Mr Osukuade Sowemimo, Deputy National Chairman, South, .Alhaji Abubakar Muslim, Deputy National Chairman, North, Alhaji Gamawa Ibrahim, National Secretary, Mr Rodney Odili-Obi, National Organising Secretary among others.

Commenting on former President Olusegun Obasanjo's letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, he said Obasanjo had indeed spoken truth to power.

He said that it would amount to playing the ostrich for any honest Nigerian to deny the very obvious truth contained in Obasanjo’s "well-intended letter."

Emmanuel stressed the need for PDP as a party to take steps that would rebrand the party devoid of all the negatives, which Obasanjo rightly captured in his letter.

“This is no time to talk either for or against Obasanjo letter, but time to act and act very fast and very decisively,” he said. (NAN)
