The National Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party yesterday empowered president Goodluck Jonathan to lead a reconciliation move to bring into the fold, aggrieved members of the party who had left.
This was according to Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Godswill Akpabio, while briefing State House correspondents after the meeting.
He noted that the suspension of his colleague, the Governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Rotim Amaechi was brought before the caucus, adding that his recall by the party may have been stalled by the fact that his case is still in court.
The Akwa Ibom State governor said the focus of the group will be to ensure that the party’s unity is not compromised.
In addition to the presidential committee, another committee that will raise guidelines that will be submitted to the National Executive Committee to steer its deliberations was initiated by the caucus. The committee includes Governor Akpabio, representatives of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) and a host of others.
