PDP: Don't wash dirty linen in public

13 August 2013, 07:27Emeka Adebanji

Abuja - The ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) appealed to party members with grievances to use internal conflict resolution platforms rather than airing their concerns in the public domain.

The National Chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, advised members who felt aggrieved to use the party's platforms such as the Reconciliation Committee or the leadership of the party to help solve their problems.

"In the recent past, the media has been awash with events of accusations and counter accusations from some of our party members," he said.

"As much as we, as a party, respect the constitutional right of individuals to public opinions, movement and association, such exercise should be done with some element of civility and in keeping with norms of the society, the party's constitution and guidelines."

Ahead of the general election slated for 2015, PDP has experienced intra-party problems with members jostling for positions.

However, the national chairman remained confident the party would overcome these and recapture constituencies lost to other parties.

The PDP National Executive Committee has meanwhile set a National Convention Committee to work on elections to fill vacant positions in the National Working Committee.
