Fresh PDP forms new NWC

Published

on

A new faction of the “defunct” Fresh Peoples Democratic Party has set up a National Working Committee to manage its affairs.

Fresh Peoples Democratic Party was formed by some members of the Peoples Democratic Party during the party’s crisis under the leadership of Ali Modu Sheriff. But the faction reportedly returned to the PDP following the sacking of Sheriff by the court and the subsequent election of Prince Uche Secondus as the PDP national chairman.

But some members of the “defunct” Fresh PDP faction said in Abuja on Thursday that they were not part of the Fresh PDP that returned to the main PDP.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja, the interim National Chairman of the new faction, Mr. Obi-Nwosu Butches, said his faction would organise an elective national convention after its membership registration.

He listed members of his group’s interim NWC members as Osukuade Sowemiko (deputy national chairman, South), Alhaji Abubakar Muslim (deputy national chairman, North), Alhaji Gamawa Muhammad Ibrahim (secretary), Rodney Odili-Obi (organising secretary); Ambassador Waziri Umar (financial secretary), and Mr. Chidi Onwuekweikpe (legal adviser), among others.

Butches said, “We promise His Excellency, Dr Olusegun Obasanjo and all lovers of our great party that the PDP will certainly turn out to be the much-needed pivot for the proposed coalition.”

“We must understand in this country that political leadership is very key, having the political will to implement what the people want is very serious.

“I don’t want to talk about the issue of distrust or no trust in government. People have raised such issues, that they don’t think that nothing will come out of all this dialogue. I don’t agree with that. I believe that if the president does not do, given the opportunities he has now, then, he will be putting Nigeria on fire.”
