Abuja – The National Chairman of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Tukur, urged aggrieved party members to resort to internal means to raise their grievances.
The suggestion follows some members breaking away from the party amid reports of infighting.
“PDP has adequate mechanism for internal conflict resolution. All party members are therefore advised to ventilate their grievances through this medium,” said Tukur.
He slammed members of a breakaway faction accusing them of causing confusion among the party’s followers.
"The PDP has only one duly elected National Executive Committee (NEC) under my Chairmanship. I wish therefore to state with all emphasis that any group of persons parading themselves as leaders of NEC or any other organ of our party is impostors and I urge all Nigerians, especially the security agencies and other institutions of democracy to regard them as such," Tukur added.
He said measures would be taken to ensure members who broke away were held accountable for their actions.
“All persons elected on the platform of our great party at all levels who identify with these enemies of the oneness and greatness of our party shall have their seats declared vacant as required by law. We shall leave no stone unturned to ensure that such persons and indeed any other individual who attempts to subvert the leadership of the PDP shall reap in full, the consequences of such actions. Consequently, we shall ensure that any person who is not duly elected into any leadership position in our great party and has not been duly assigned any role but goes ahead to arrogate such to himself will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”
