The PDP has commended the intervention and efforts of Chief Tony Anenih, the Chairman of the party's Board of Trustees (BoT) in reconciling the aggrieved party members.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Olisa Metuh, made this known in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.
He said that Anenih`s effort was complementary to the realisation of the goals of the current National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the PDP NWC on March 15, commenced a tour of the six geopolitical zones of the federation to reconcile aggrieved party members.
The tour, which was rounded up on March 24 with a grand finale in Abuja, marked the one year anniversary of the Tukur led NWC of the PDP, which came into existence on March 24, 2012.
Metuh said that Anenih had lived up to his reputation as a consensus builder and a strong believer in the supremacy of the party since his election as BoT chairman.
He said that he had always been promoting the advancement of collective interests over and above narrow interests.
“His intervention at a time the NWC has embarked upon a tour to achieve total reconciliation and engender internal cohesion is worthy of commendation,” the PDP spokesman said.
He expressed confidence in the BoT chairman's ability to use his experience, wide contacts and wisdom to bring all PDP members together for the common goal of providing qualitative service to the people.
Metuh said that the PDP national chairman was particularly delighted with the synergy between the BoT under Anenih, the NWC, and the PDP Governors forum.
“Anenih is knitting the party together in the midst of unfounded speculations of disunity,’’ Metuh said.
He said that the PDP remained the most united and formidable political movement and the best platform for political expression in Nigeria, a credential which could not be pocessed by other parties.
Metuh commended PDP Governors Forum under the chairmanship of Gov. Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom, for standing firm and remaining undaunted in spite of efforts by opposition to discredit the forum.
“Our governors are the pillars of our party, they are the vital channels for the translation of our manifesto to practical reality.
“It is, therefore, of utmost necessity that they remain united and focused for the sake of our people,” Metuh said.
He gave the assurance that the PDP NWC would ensure that all individuals and tendencies within the party were totally reconciled in fulfilment of the party's national chairman's political development agenda.
