Jos – Deputy Chairman of the PDP in Plateau State Chief Raymond Dabo has indicated his group’s interest in the amicable resolution of the crisis within the party.
He stated this while briefing journalists on the state of the party saying necessary steps would be taken to resolve differences among members.
‘We as a party are interested that this problem is resolved amicably. We are all members of the same family and we believe sincerely in the PDP project’ he said.
Dabo commended the National Executive Committee of the party for deferring to the rule of law by not discussing the problem in the Plateau State chapter at its last meeting in view of the pending litigation over the matter.
He said the Abu King Shuluwa-led caretaker committee set up to oversee the affairs of the party had ceased to exist by virtue of the court injunction stopping it from operating.
Contributing, State Secretary of the PDP Mr. Daniel Dakim said members of the Professor Dakum Shown-led executive went to court to challenge their dissolution which he said contravenes the party’s constitution that specifies a four-year tenure for an elected executive.
He decribed as untrue claims that the party’s constitution barred members from taking disputes to court adding that it only encouraged them to first exhaust internal avenues for resolution.
He said they were in court to seek redress against the dissolution which breached their right to serve out their tenure.
