Following the Supreme Court ruling resolving the leadership crisis in the party, and as part of its 2019 election plans, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has inaugurated its Convention, Disciplinary and Reconciliation Committees.
TheConvention Committee has the Governor of Delta State, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, as chairman, Alhaji Sule Lamido and Senator Abiodun Olujimi as deputy chairman and secretary respectively.
Also, the Governors of Rivers and Gombe States, Nyesom Wike and Ibrahim Dankwambo, will co-chair the Reconciliatory Committee, while Foreign Affairs Minister, Chief Tom Ikimi was named chairman of the Disciplinary Committee.
The chairman of PDP National Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, while inaugurating the committees, charged members to do their best to bring all former members back into the fold of the party in order to set it on a better footing ahead of 2019.
He said, “reconciliation is very important. We must reconcile and bring back all those who have held important positions in the past including past President, Vice President and others”, adding that the reconciliation scope was not limited to post-2015 election defeat fallout which saw some members quit the party.
“The reconciliation goes as far back as possible, it is not an issue that has to do with the past one or two years”, he added.
