Bamanga-Vs-Baraje-500x283The Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, has warned the Alhaji Kawu Baraje led faction of the party known as New PDP, to stop making utterances, issuing press statements, holding meetings under the banner of PDP or be treated as impostors and criminals.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had yesterday declared the activities of the New PDP as illegal, just as it ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to only recognize the Alhaji Bamanga Tukur led National Working Committee, NWC, of the party.

Seizing the legitimacy bestowed on its leadership by the court, the Tukur-led PDP warned that it would no longer tolerate the excesses of the Baraje faction.

In a statement signed on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, PDP said,   “For the avoidance of doubt, the ruling of the court in this regard is absolutely clear, direct and unambiguous. The PDP has only one duly elected National Executive Committee under the National Chairmanship of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.

“We wish therefore to state with all emphasis that any group of persons parading themselves as leaders of this organ of our party are impostors and must be treated as criminals by all and sundry.

“Henceforth, the leadership of the PDP will no longer tolerate or condone any meeting, utterances, press statements and/or activities whatsoever under the name, flag and colour of the PDP by any unauthorized person or group(s) under any guise.

“As a law abiding party, the PDP remained calm in the face of the unwarranted attacks of the last few months. Our leaders chose the path of caution and decorum but our reconciliatory moves and offer of olive branch were treated with the highest disdain and viewed as signs of weakness.

“The National Working Committee has therefore directed that the name, colour, flag and the provisions of constitution of our party must be held sacrosanct by our members. The PDP has adequate internal mechanism for resolution of disagreements and members are advised to express their grievances through such”.
