Stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State have set up some committees including the one saddled with the task of reconciling warring and aggrieved members.
The stakeholders, under the aegis of Ekiti State Coalition of PDP Stakeholders, said that the committees were inaugurated “to assist in several areas of interest to bring more succour and progress to the party”.
A communique, after the ECOPS meeting, made available to journalists in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, listed the committees as “Reconciliation Committee, Mobilisation Committee, Contact Committee, Planning Committee, Implementation Committee, Monitoring Committee, Evaluation Committee and Media and Publicity Committee”.
The communique was signed by representatives of PDP local government chairmen and 50 other leaders including former Southwest Chairman, Chief Makanjuola Ogundipe; former state chairman, Gboyega Oguntuwase; and former acting governor, Tunji Odeyemi.
The coalition, which expressed total support for all steps that would restore peace to PDP in Ekiti State, reiterated support and commitment to the success of the state PDP Chairman, Alaba Agboola, and encouraged him to do more in his numerous reconciliation efforts to further unite the party.
The coalition, while charging the committees to discharge their responsibilities in manners that would further entrench PDP in Ekiti State, appealed to every leader and group within the party “to stop fanning any ember of discord and to sheath their swords in the overall interest of the party and its teeming members.”
The coalition lauded PDP leader in Ekiti State, Senator Biodun Olujimi, “for her great efforts as the rallying point for our party in Ekiti State, which has assisted in no small measure to strengthen the party and further reconciled numerous aggrieved members.
“The meeting also appreciated the efforts of the national leaders of the party, particularly former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the National Working Committee, and encouraged them to do more to give the party a clear direction to success, which is needed most at this crucial period”.
