The Wadata House, National Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was besieged by protesters yesterday demanding that the party’s building process should evolve a dialogue where all stakeholders views would be accommodated.
The group, under the aegis of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Youth Forum, a coalition of several other groups, thronged the entrance of the party Secretariat and was led by Comrade Desmond Adejoh, National Coordinator of the grassroots support for PDP.
The group said the party must take a common ground to escape the influence of infiltrators within its ranks whose main objective is to see the decimation of the party. The protesters carried different placards some of which read : “ PDP Should Respect The Constitution, NWC Serve Your Term, Do Not Make NWC Scapegoat.” They also called on the party members to engage themselves on the roundtable early in the day as it would be inevitable in sorting things out.
The leader of the group said the governors-elect should lead the sides of the pro and anti-national Working Committee members to a total dialogue for the PDP to work, stressing that the whole disaffection raging at the moment is geared towards that purpose.Comrade Adejoh stressed that the process of rebuilding the party can only be realisable through dialogue, saying the youth group was demanding jaw-jaw as the way out of the situation.
