PDP Convention: Group Seeks Ouster of  NWC Members


By Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja

A group within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the PDP Reform Group, made up of mainly youths, has demanded that all the members of the National Working Committee (NWC) whose tenure expired on March 21, 2016, be barred from re-contesting during the May 21forthcoming national convention of the party.

The agrieved group led by Ariyo Dare Atoye made the demand during a courtesy visit to the PDP press corps yesterday in Abuja.

While speaking on the arrangements for the convention, Atoye said: “It is a shame that after mismanaging the post defeat era of the party and squandering the left over resources, some persons want to return.”

“This is a big shame. It is a collective feeling of all our members nationwide that none of them should come back. We consequently demand that every member of the old NWC should give account of their stewardship, individually and collectively.”
