The board of trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has appealed to members of the party to refrain from indulging in actions that will further divide the party
In a statement on Thursday by Walid Jibrin, chairman of the PDP BoT, the party assured members that governor Wike of Rivers state and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, will settle their differences.
He said the party’s leadership is working on resolving the rift between Atiku and Wike.
He implored memebers to remain calm and avoid stirring up sentiments and creating confusion in the party.
“I wish to call on all members of PDP and all Nigerians to remain calm and never create bad blood and confusion in the state of our party noting that all efforts are on the ground for reconciliation between [Nyesom] Wike, the party and the presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar,” the statement reads.
“What is happening now should never be categorised as a problem but as a misunderstanding within the party. In this period leading to the 2023 elections, we should concentrate on how to win all positions to be contested and seriously adhere to the provision of the party constitution.
“My strong advice is for us to give strong support to the present reconciliation committee set up to resolve all issues. Thereafter, the BoT, the highest advisory organ of the party, will give more encouragement leading to greater success for the PDP.”
