PDP refutes reports membership is closed

26 May 2014, 17:01

Abuja - The ruling People's Democratic Party denied reports its chairman ordered the removal and closure of membership registers of the party.

Media reports suggested PDP National Chairman, Ahmadu Adamu Muazu, gave the order at a meeting with the State Chairmen.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Monday explained that the National Working Committee had instead “directed that all membership registers must remain at the ward level and made completely accessible to all Nigerians in line with the provisions of the PDP constitution.”

The statement said state chapters were fully aware that Nigerians at all levels are free to join the PDP.

PDP cannot in any way whatsoever unjustly deny membership to anybody, especially as the PDP remains the only party truly owned by the people and represents the only platform for them to realize their full democratic credentials”.

The National Working Committee therefore called on all party members and the general public to disregard the said reports adding that the PDP will remain committed to the principle of internal democracy and the provision of level play ground for all Nigerians to actualize their political aspirations within the ambits of the law.
