Taraba PDP warns members against meetings

08 December 2012, 16:23

Jalingo - The Taraba People's Democratic Party (PDP) has warned its members to desist from holding meetings ahead of 2015 elections as such action is against party guidelines.

Victor Bala Kona, the state Chairman of the party, warned on Saturday in a speech he delivered at the first meeting of the party's stakeholder’s forum in Jalingo.

He said it had been brought to the notice of the party that some members have been holding meetings in Abuja and other parts of the country ahead of the 2015 elections.  

Kona said that a disciplinary committee had been constituted to try any member who contravenes the provisions of the PDP constitution.

He said that the party was above any member or group, irrespective of his or her position in the society.  

Bala explained that the party was working at reconciling all aggrieved members to restore the confidence reposed in the executive and to eliminate negative perception.  

He added that the prime agenda of the present leadership in the last nine months had been to fine-tune and entrench new vision, for dynamic political awareness.

The state’s Acting Governor, Alhaji Garba Umar, expressed appreciation to the party leadership for the strides accomplished.

He added that though PDP was deeply rooted in the state, but there were still challenges and advised the leadership to address all weaknesses.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting was attended by all party chairmen from the 16 councils, present and past members of the state executive council and the legislators.
