PDP offer rebels another olive branch

16 September 2013, 07:25Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) offered rebellious members another opportunity of reconciliation.

The party was still hopeful dialogue would resolve the ongoing deadlock that had torn it apart.

“We wish to assure our members that we are still capable of resolving our challenges and urge them to be more committed to our progress.

"We shall emerge stronger,” The party said in a statement Olisa Metuh, the National Publicity Secretary, issued.

The statement added that ongoing approach were detrimental to the future of the party.

A faction of the party broke away from PDP three weeks ago following tensions that were simmering for some time.

“This tactic is antithetical to democracy but not an unfamiliar rule of engagement. It is important that we avoid over- stretching it and shutter not glaring overtures to reason so as not to play into the waiting hands of the desperate wishing to incite the people and destroy our common destiny,” the PDP statement read.

“The on-going skirmishes and well organized theatrics are aimed at portraying the President in a bad light, were not necessary because as members of one big family no challenge was insurmountable.”
