2023: PDP in Secret Moves to Reconcile Govs, Others
As part of its preparation ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has launched an initiative to reconcile its warring governors.
Also to be resolved are the disagreements among aggrieved chieftains across the country.
Top on the list of such feuds is that between Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State.
The talks are to be kept as secret as possible with a view to achieving a high rate of success.
Party chieftains were disappointed that previous efforts to forge unity in the party had not gone as expected.
They blamed those they branded as fifth columnists within and outside the party for truncating such previous peace efforts, hence the need to keep the fresh reconciliation plans secret.
“The party has since discovered that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and its agents are working hard to keep the PDP divided as 2023 approaches,” a well-placed source revealed.
“The APC, which benefited from the division within the PDP in 2015 and 2019, has perfected plans to keep our party divided more and more so as to continue benefiting.”
The PDP chieftain also said that the unending media war among the warring persons and groups within the party was always reconciliation difficult.
“It is for this reason that the National Working Committee (NWC) in one of its meetings, resolved, on the suggestion of our national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, to keep our reconciliation efforts as secret as possible. When these fifth columnists are less aware of our moves, the less havoc they can wreck,” he said.
