Fresh PDP Collapses
A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) known as the ‘Fresh PDP’ has agreed to collapse into the mainstream PDP.
The group led by one Emmanuel Nwosu had opened a factional secretariat at Asokoro, and threatened to inaugurate a factional National Working Committee (NWC) on Monday this week.
The truce was announced by National chairman of the Fresh PDP, Olukayode Akindele, after a meeting with former national chairman of PDP, Okwesilieze Nwodo, on Saturday in Abuja.
Akindele, who claimed to be the interim chairman of the group, said that they have decided to sheath their sword in the interest of Nigeria and the 2019 general elections.
“The cracks that you noticed in the PDP have been sealed up. I am delighted to tell you that we have collapsed into the mainstream PDP. We have assurances from our leaders and the we will not have a parallel NWC Monday,” he said.
“We are now united to sweep away this government that is insensitive to human needs and failed to provide security and welfare of the people which is the basic reason for government’s existence come 2019."
On his part, Nwodo said that the reconciliation was reached with the knowledge of the Board of Trustees (BoT), the National Working Committee (NWC) and other organs of the party.
“If the Fresh PDP was allowed to form a structure on Monday, they would have given legitimacy to our members to leave the PDP.
“We have learnt our lessons and we are coming back more prepared and resolute to change the fortunes of this country,” Nwodo said.
Similarly, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said, “What was perceived as crisis is over.”
