Abuja - A faction established within the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has not been registered by the Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC), a prominent legal practitioner said.
In the interview on Channels Television programme Sunrise Daily, George Eke confirmed the faction had not been registered with INEC.
“You don’t become a party by press conference,” he said.
He also said the governors who formed a faction within the PDP did so without consulting President Goodluck Jonathan.
Eke went on to praise former president Olusegun Obansanjo for meeting President Jonathan with the aim of resolving the ongoing PDP crisis.
The crisis within the ruling party is a family crisis that can be resolved, Eke said suggesting the PDP should set up a system to monitor its members and their activities.
