Ekiti group seeks cancellation of ‘botched’ PDP adhoc congress
A pressure group, Ekiti Political Intervention Coalition (EPIC), has asked the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to “immediately cancel the botched PDP adhoc delegates congress” purportedly held in Ekiti last Saturday.
“For the PDP to rescue and rebuild Nigeria, the process must begin from within, and the National Chairman must be bold in leading the NWC and the party to take decisions that will salvage the party in Ekiti State,” said EPIC in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Banji Dada.
The group also asked to know why the party has continued to indulge the alleged excesses of former Governor Ayodele Fayose, who is not an aspirant in the party’s coming primary election.
“We want Mr. Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, to know that a party that wants to rescue and rebuild Nigeria will not be indulging a man who attempted to truncate the last National Convention of the PDP through his cronies but failed,” the group said.
EPIC suggested measures the PDP could take to salvage the political process in Ekiti State.
It called for adoption of the Anambra Option as a win-win solution for all aspirants in the Ekiti PDP governorship primary election, saying the use of automatic delegates is the only condition that can ease concerns.
