PDP exco urges aggrieved members to seek redress

22 August 2013, 10:09

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Auditor, Adewole Adeyanju, has appealed to aggrieved party members to use the party's internal mechanisms to seek redress.

Adeyanju made the appeal when he spoke with newsmen at the end of the party's National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.

He also urged the aggrieved members to stop distracting, Bamanga Tukur, the National Chairman of the party, adding that such distractions were unnecessary.

"If you are aggrieved, come to the party, report to the NWC, make your case known and we will discuss as a PDP family in order to move forward.

"Tukur represents stability, sincerity and reliability and has a very large heart," Adeyanju said.

He attributed some of the party’s internal crisis to the fact that most party members misunderstood Tukur.

Commenting on the incessant threats and plots to remove Tukur from office by the aggrieved party members, Adeyanju said Tukur was the best candidate for the party.

According to him, Tukur is capable of taking the PDP to greater heights, given his wealth of experience.

This, he however, said could only be possible if he was allowed to function optimally without unnecessary distractions from party members.

"Tukur is fit and capable to lead the party to greater heights; he will lead the PDP to victory in future elections, but we have to give him the chance and the necessary support.

"He is a man of high integrity and great wealth of experience, no political party in the country has such a man as its national chairman. We ought to be celebrating him.’’

The national auditor urged members to put an end to propaganda and campaign of calumny against the chairman and other leaders in the overall interest of the party and the nation at large.
