Indications emerged this Thursday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have resolved to settle its lingering crisis by adopting a political solution. The party’s Standing Committee on Reconciliation, headed by Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson, at its meeting held in Abuja, reviewed recent developments in the party and decided that a political solution is the best option for the protracted crises in the party.
A statement signed by the Committee Chairman, Dickson; the Deputy Vice Chairman, Senator Ibrahim Mantu, and the Secretary, Senator Joshua Lidani indicated that the meeting was attended by National Assembly members and former leaders of the party.
According to the statement, the party’s stalwarts endorsed the resolution of the meeting between the former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR and PDP State Governors in this regard without prejudice to the ongoing judicial processes.
It also stated, “That as part of this process, it is imperative that an early convention within the second quarter of 2017 should be held in Abuja which therefore should be all inclusive and where new national officials of the party will be freely, fairly and transparently elected.
“In furtherance of this, the reconciliation committee shall embark on extensive consultations with all stakeholders with a view to building confidence and necessary consensus toward the Unity Convention.”
The Committee also appealed to all party leaders, and members of the party to exercise restraint and focus on the loyalty to and the overall interest of the party.
