PDP reforms go ahead despite resistance

05 August 2015, 08:33Augustine Osayande

Abuja – The National Working Committee of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) insisted the reorganisation of the party would proceed despite resistance from some quarters.

It said this in response to the PDP Staff Welfare Committee.

PDP National Publicity Secretary Chief Olisa Metuh said the process of staff re-organization is a sub-component of the reform process in the party.

Metuh described the reactions of junior, intermediate and supervisory members of Staff under the auspices of PDP Staff Welfare as unnecessary and unfortunate.

"The NWC appreciates the concerns of all stakeholders of the Party and assures all members that it will not be deterred in its sworn responsibility to reposition, re-organize and re-structure the Party," said Met uh.

He said for the purpose of clarity, the process of staff re-organization is a sub-component of the reform process in the party. 

"Consequently, the NWC further affirms that the internal memo emanating from the Office of the National Secretary stands,” Met uh stated.

He added that the committee will not be deterred, blackmailed or cowed from taking objective steps necessary for sound political health, astute opposition and general re-organization of the party.

“NWC also assures all members and indeed Nigeria that finances of the Party have been handled in line with standard financial regulations governing political parties and the Constitution of the PDP,” Metuh added.
