The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has issued an ultimatum to all aggrieved members and those who left the party but are interested in coming back to do so within 30 days.
This was the outcome of the meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party Wednesday signed by the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
The statement said the 30-day deadline for all former members to rejoin the party is in keeping with the ongoing efforts to promote reconciliation within party and in line with the NEC-approved basic philosophy and achieve triple ‘R’s, of Reconciliation, Reformation and Rebuilding of the party.
According to the statement by Tukur, “the PDP umbrella is big enough to accommodate everybody and therefore all those who left the party, or are not actively working with the party, for any reason(s) to return to the party through their wards. This exercise be carried out within thirty (30) days from now.”
The PDP directed Ward chairmen and secretaries to ensure that such returnees are registered without any inhibitions, while reiterating that any one not allowed to go through this process should report such hindrance(s) to the next level, and up to the national secretariat of the party.
Tukur directed the National Vice-Chairmen to ensure that the directive was complied with.
He said the NWC is also setting up zonal reconciliation committees which will handle lingering disagreements and forge a more united party.
