Troubled PDP Takes Major Decision to Resolve Crisis
There may be an end in sight to the crisis bedeviling the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The party has resolved to adopt political, rather than legal approach, to seek lasting solution to the party’s leadership crisis.
The decision was reached on Tuesday night after governors elected under the platform of the party met with former President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja.
In attendance at the meeting were governors of Ekiti, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Taraba, Cross River, Abia, Ebonyi, Gombe and Bayelsa. Rivers was represented by the deputy governor.
Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum and Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, who disclosed the outcome of the parley said the meeting was at the instance of Jonathan and that all interests in the party would be represented in the search for the needed solution to the impasse.
“He, Jonathan, is genuinely concerned about what is going on in the party, and he thought that an interactive session with the governors will go a long way to dousing tension.
He said all the stakeholders present at the meeting believed that a political solution will go a long way to solve this matter.
He explained that engaging the National Chairman of the party, Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, was part of the political approaches to be adopted in resolving the problems.
Fayose assured all PDP supporters that the governors believed in the party as well in its success, and urged members and the supporters to refrain from making comments that could compound the party’s crisis.
