Abuja – WORRIED by the lingering crisis in the Plateau State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), elders and members of the party in the state, yesterday, urged the party National Working Committee (NWC) to revisit the issues that led to the dissolution of the elected Executive Committees if there must be lasting peace.
The elders, who stormed the National Secretariat of the party yesterday in Abuja, venue of the NWC meeting, stressed that they were also disturbed that the political quagmire has now become a subject of litigation in court.
Led by the Second Republic Deputy Senate President, Senator John Wash Pam, the elders told the Prince Vincent Ogbulafor-led NWC that as major stakeholders and founding members of the party, they have been havingÂ sleepless nights over the unfolding scenario in the Plateau State PDP that culminated in the sack of the state executive committee and, thereafter, replaced with a caretaker committee, adding that if not addressed immediately, it would affect the â€œpeace and political cohesionâ€ in the state.
â€œThis group is the top echelon of the PDP in Plateau State. We are very loyal party members and we are not happy with what is happening to the party in Plateau State. We are not happy we are in court with our national body,â€ the elders said.
Pam who, however, commended the NWC on behalf of the group in its efforts at resolving the crises in the state, stressed that they were in Abuja to seek the help of the NWC in nipping in the bud the crisis bedeviling the Plateau State chapter of the party, adding that peace has eluded Plateau State for several years and the tide should not be allowed to continue unchecked.
