Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has apologised to supporters and founders of the organisation following the bickering among its leadership in recent weeks.

The party has been hit by infighting following the outcome of the March/April elections that saw the rival All Progressives Congress emerge as the ruling party.

“The leadership of the PDP regrets any embarrassment the avoidable skirmishes may have caused the members of our great party, especially our founding fathers and teeming supporters across the country,” DP spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, said.

“We are aware that this unfortunate development is a consequence of post election trauma arising from our first ever defeat. We however note with relief that we have now overcome this challenge.

"The National Working Committee assures that in the new spirit of harmony in the PDP family, the reengineering process which began on Tuesday with the inauguration of the Post Election Review Committee will be vigorously sustained to restore the lost glory of our great party,” Metuh added.

He said the PDP urgeed all its members to ensure they henceforth guarded their utterances and actions no matter the provocation and distortions in some section of the media while channeling their energies and ideas towards the rebuilding process.

“In this regard, all members who have reports, grievances and suggestions on the way forward should transmit same to the Post-Election Review Committee for an all inclusive roadmap in the overall effort to regain power in 2019.”

Metuh said members should be wary of the activities of some mischievous persons within and outside the PDP family who are bent on frustrating this peace effort.

“Such individuals and groups have found the social media a veritable tool for their mischief through distortion of facts, false allegations and fabrications against our party.”

Metuh said PDP commended its leader, President Goodluck Jonathan, who lost the presidential poll to APC’s Muhammadu Buhari, for his intervention to end the bickering among leaders of the party.
