‘No change in PDP leadership’ – NWC
By; Jacob Onjewu Dickson.
There has been no change in the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), its National Working Committee (NWC) has said.
In a statement issued and signed by its National Legal Adviser, Barrister Victor Kwon, the party assured all its members nationwide that there has not been any change whatsoever in the leadership composition of the party at the national level.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the statutory organs of the party, the NWC, National Caucus, BoT and NEC will be meeting next week to deliberate on some developments including the replacement, from the North East of Alhaji Adamu Muazu, who resigned as the National Chairman of the party.
“The replacement will be in strict adherence to the provisions of the constitution of our great party as specified in section 47(6). Until then, the status quo remains, which means the Deputy National Chairman Prince Uche Secondus, remains as the Acting National Chairman.
It reiterated that all relevant stakeholders of the party, including the PDP Governor’s Forum, National Caucus and the Board of Trustees (BoT) as well as our leadership structures at all levels are united behind the current National Working Committee in the efforts to rebuild, reposition and strengthen our party for the challenges ahead.
“The leadership of our party has resolved to remain focused and not be distracted by the unpatriotic actions of the former Political Adviser to the former President because we are privy to his agenda of being an agent of destabilization in the party.
It urged all members, especially those with various aspirations to dedicate to actions that unite rather than divide their ranks. “The NWC wishes to assure of its unflinching commitment to the wider interest of the party, especially at this challenging time,” it added.
