By Emmanuel Oloniruha

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday asked chairperson of the State chapters of the party to submit their reports on investigations into alleged anti-party activities by members in the 2023 general election.

The party National Organising Secretary, Umar Bature, stated this on Tuesday during the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) meeting with the state chairmen in Abuja.

Bature directed the state chairmen to put their reports in written form for appropriate actions to be taken by the party leadership.

“A lot of agitations are coming from party members, suspend this, suspend that, you are the ones that are in charge of those states.

“You are to tell us who engaged in anti-party activities and who did not. Based on that, the National Executive Committee (NEC) will take a decision. Write to us and tell us what transpired, no matter what happened.

“I also want the acting chairman to call on the chairman of the party in Cross River to tell us what is happening in the state.

“We really need to know what is happening,” he said.

Bature said that after the 2023 general election the NWC expect the state chapters to submit their post election result.

He said that a lot of the states are yet to submit their reports.

He recalled that most of the current executives in the states were elected four years ago, where congresses were conducted on a staggered basis due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have about four or five states where tenures of the executive had expired from the ward to the state, that is Edo, Bayelsa, Gombe and Rivers, there are others which are staggered.

“We called the meeting to discuss this in order not to create a vacuum.

“We also have vacancies due to deaths and resignations,” he said.

Speaking after the meeting, the PDP chairman in Kaduna State, Mr Felix Hyet, said a resolutions was taken for the state chapters to work together with all stakeholders for the victory of the party in 2027.

Hyet said that state chairmen resolved to support the Edo and Ondo chapters of the party for victory in the forcing governorship elections in the states.

The NWC later had a closed-door meeting with party stakeholders from Ondo.
