PDP Commences Process To Resolve Internal Crisis
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Staff Management Committee has said that efforts are ongoing to resolve the party’s internal crisis and reposition it.
Employees of the party at its national secretariat in Abuja have been at loggerheads with the management of the party over unpaid salaries and entitlements coupled with a planned move to retrench staff.
The National Director of Administration of the party, Alhaji Gurama Bawa, in a statement Thursday in Abuja, said that management committee comprising directors, deputy directors and assistant directors at the party's secretariat have waded into the matter with a view to finding an amicable solution to the problem.
“To this effect, a meeting between the members of the staff welfare committee and the management staff was held on Aug.3, during which the staff were prevailed upon to stop all further adverse reactions.
“The management committee has taken up the issues with the NWC and there are real prospects for an amicable solution,” it stated.
It added that the staff management committee noted with regrets that the frustration arising from the sudden release of the reorganization circular inflamed passions.
“We wish to reassure the teeming members, supporters and stakeholders of PDP that all efforts are being made to resolve this internal family problem and to ensure that the party comes out stronger.
“All staff is enjoined to note that the survival of the party is critical.
“They should also be vigilant to ensure that those who do not mean well for the PDP do not capitalise on the administrative problems to ridicule the party,” it stressed.
