SAN FRANCISCO, June 18, (THEWILL) – President Goodluck Jonathan is to head a high-powered committee to reconcile all aggrieved members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The national caucus of the party gave the mandate to the President during its meeting which held Tuesday night.

Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Governor Godswill Akpabio, who disclosed this at the end of the meeting, said the president was expected to use his position as the father of the party to bring all aggrieved members back to the fold.

Aside the presidential committee, another committee that will raise guidelines that will be submitted to the National Executive Committee (NEC) to steer its deliberations was raised by the caucus. The committee comprises of Akpabio, representatives of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) and others.

Akpabio disclosed that the recall of Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State which also came up at the caucus meeting may have been stalled because his case is still in court.

The Akwa Ibom State governor also said the caucus hailed the president’s mid-term scorecard and urged state governors to replicate same in their states.
