All activities pertaining to the yet-to-be constituted committee on the proposed Peoples Democratic Party’s national conference have been put on hold by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
The PDP National Secretary, Prof. Adewale Oladipo, in a statement Wednesday, said the decision is to create room for further consultations and exhaustive consideration by critical stakeholders, of the report of the PDP Post-Election Assessment Committee, headed by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, which is due for submission this month.
“While the national leadership notes and appreciates the eagerness, commitment and dedication of our leaders and members in the rebuilding of the party, we have also noted the need to allow proper consideration of the report of the Senator Ekweremadu-led Post Election Assessment Committee accordingly, especially as that committee is headed by the highest elected PDP member in the nation.
“In that regard therefore, the NWC directs that all activities of the said committee on the proposed PDP National Conference be put on hold forthwith.
“The consideration of the report of the PDP Post Election Assessment Committee will include inputs from members of PDP leadership organs, including PDP Governors’ Forum, PDP National Assembly Caucus, Board of Trustees, National Caucus, National Working Committee (NWC) and the National Executive Committee (NEC), immediately upon receipt of the report.
“Finally, the NWC reassures that in the final composition of all the committees to be inaugurated by the leadership of the party in due course, all critical stakeholders will be consulted and all necessary interests accommodated”.
