Why PDP Has Not Held NEC Meeting – Tukur

Bamanga_Tukur_984260871National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has said that  there are no strings attached in holding the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, saying the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party is working towards having an eventful NEC meeting soon.

Speaking yesterday to journalists in Abuja against the backdrop that non-holding of NEC was a major issue confronting the party’s leadership, Tukur  said the NEC meeting of the party would not be called for the fun of it, as the party was gathering ‘enough issues’ to be discussed.

He said, “You don’t go to NEC just like that. I want to gather enough issues now so that when we eventually call NEC, which will be soon, we will have enough issues to articulate.”

On the alleged rift between him and governors under the party’s platform, Tukur denied the leadership of the party and its state governors were at loggerheads but added ‘no PDP governor is averse to reconciliation.’

He said, “It is not true that PDP governors are working against our reconciliation efforts. PDP is one big family and the governors are all members of the same family so why will they not support our reconciliation efforts. I can tell you that PDP governors are not averse to reconciliation”.
