Akpabio, PDP Governors Forum Set to Reconcile Aggrieved Party Members

LAGOS SEPTEMBER 1ST (URHOBOTODAY)-Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum and Akwa Ibom State Governor, Chief Godswill Akpabio, has set machinery in motion to reconcile aggrieved members of the party and bring them back into the fold, especially those who walked out of the mini national convention and formed the ‘New PDP’ last Saturday.
SaharaReporters gathered that Akpabio has assured Nigerians that the PDP Governors Forum has waded into the crisis, which some governors of the party said was primarily caused by the crisis rocking the Adamawa State, Nigeria chapter of the party.
According to Akpabio, the forum would ensure that the crisis within the party is resolved, adding that no matter what happens, the PDP remained the party to beat.
He said what happened at the mini convention was a misunderstanding, adding that all the governors on the party’s platform would not leave any stone unturned in making sure the crisis becomes a thing of the past.
The governor said the forum had made some overtures to the aggrieved members of the party, including former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and other governors who had formed the ‘New PDP’.
He said within a short time the misunderstanding would be attended to, as members of the forum had decided that the root cause of crisis within the party would be confronted and lasting solution found.
Quoting another member of the forum, who does not want his name mentioned, “Frankly speaking, we were caught unawares by what happened at the mini convention, I mean the walk-out by former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and some governors. But we have found out that the problem stated when the acting National Secretary, Remi Akintoye, made the announcement that delegates from Adamawa State would not be allowed to vote, but the statutory delegates.
“You know we have some issues with the Adamawa State executive of the party. All these issues will be looked into and I can assure you that the party will come out of this crisis stronger than ever before.”
