The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has put on hold, all activities pertaining to the yet to be inaugurated committee on the proposed PDP National Conference.
This decision, according to a statement issued on Wednesday by Olisa Metuh, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, is to create room for further consultations and exhaustive consideration by critical stakeholders, of the report of the PDP Post Election Assessment Committee, headed by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, which is due for submission this month.
The statement said that while the national leadership notes and appreciates the eagerness, commitment and dedication of the party’s leaders and members in the rebuilding of the party, it had also noted the need to allow proper consideration of the report of the Senator Ekweremadu-led Post Election Assessment Committee particularly as the committee is headed by the highest elected PDP member in the country.
“In that regard therefore, the NWC directs that all activities of the said committee on the proposed PDP National Conference be put on hold forthwith.
“The consideration of the report of the PDP Post Election Assessment Committee will include inputs from members of PDP leadership organs, including PDP Governors’ Forum, PDP National Assembly Caucus, Board of Trustees, National Caucus, National Working Committee (NWC) and the National Executive Committee (NEC), immediately upon receipt of the report.
The statement added the party’s NWC has reassured that in the final composition of all the committees to be inaugurated by the leadership of the party in due course, all critical stakeholders will be consulted and all necessary interests accommodated.
