We Handed Over United PDP – Adeyeye

The immediate past spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has expressed dismay at the latest factional crisis in the party.
Adeyeye said the defunct National Caretaker Committee handed over a “highly united party” to the new National Working Committee (NWC) led by Prince Uche Secondus.
He said it would be a “big disappointment” if the party leaders start another factional crisis, adding that the rift will be resolved very soon.
A group of aggrieved members led by one Emmanuel Nwosu had on Wednesday formed a splinter group known as Fresh PDP following crisis that trailed the December 9 national convention of the party.
They kicked against the conduct of the convention, citing the emergence of a “unity list” as a major flaw in the exercise.
Adeyeye spoke with journalists in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday shortly after he was welcomed back to his home state by thousands of supporters.
Adeyeye said: “I am now home, I am no longer in the executive of the PDP and you know that we have just handed over after serving the party.
“It will be a big disappointment if we start another (factional) crisis; as far as the National Caretaker Committee in which I served is concerned, we have handed over a united PDP.
“We have conducted a credible convention, the first real elective convention in the history of the party and it was very successful.
“We had anticipated that there would be problems after this convention and that was why we set up a reconciliation committee headed by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State.
“He has swung into action already, he is already working. I believe that if we all give support to that committee, it will be able to solve these problems.
“I believe that within the next weeks, we will get over these problems. It is not unexpected but I believe we will get over our problems.”
