Abuja - The National leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it would not trade words with aggrieved party members in spite its current challenges.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said this on the sidelines of Kano State stakeholders of the party visit to PDP headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.
Metuh said the decision became necessary because the focus of the party was to ensure rededication of members to its fold in spite all odds.
“We will not exchange words with our aggrieved brothers, reconciliation is ongoing and we will not dislocate the reconciliation process.”
“Our focus is to redouble our efforts to ensure that our party members rededicate themselves to the party,” Metuh said.
He also said that the party leadership was working to ensure that the party’s elected and appointed representatives put in more effort than before to satisfy the yearnings of Nigerians.
The Elders' Committee of the party, under the leadership of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, is expected to restore normalcy and unity within the ranks of the PDP.
The PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, had earlier warned that he was “fully in charge” of the party and threatened to declare vacant the seats of the elected members of the party that joined the parallel PDP.
An Abuja High Court on Sept, 6, ordered that the splinter group should not operate or parade themselves as leaders of the PDP until the hearing of the suit before it.
It, therefore, affirmed the leadership of the party under the chairmanship of Tukur.
