PDP Leadership Crisis Will End Soon – Rep Edionwele

PDP-Headquarters sealedA member representing Esan Central/West/Igueben federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Joseph Edionwele has expressed optimism that current leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would be resolved shortly.
Speaking in Abuja at the weekend, the PDP lawmaker disclosed that all genuine stakeholders of the party were striving to ensure that the issues were urgently and amicably resolved to usher lasting peace among members.
“Ali Modu Sheriff is just flaunting himself as a chairman that he is not, and I believe that the issue will be addressed as soon as possible.
“The PDP will definitely resolve the issue and come out strong.
“The convention supersedes whatever anyone thinks he or she is doing to the party and that will not stop us from moving forward.
“He is claiming to be the chairman of the party, let him come out and tell us who he is leading”, Edionwele said.
He also backed the suspicions in some quarters that the All Progressives Congress (APC) could be instigating crisis in the PDP to weaken it.
“I believe it, because it is an opposition party; they will want to do anything to weaken the PDP, looking at their body language so far.
“From the beginning the police was involved then, suddenly they withdrew. So, I believe the APC is part of the crisis in the PDP”, he said.
The lawmaker, however, called on PDP members to respect the supremacy of the party.
“I want to say that the Constitution is supreme, the party is supreme and everyone who claims to be part of the party should respect the Constitution”, he added.
