Why PDP postponed Caucus, NEC meetings

Why PDP postponed Caucus, NEC meetings

The last is yet to be heard about the crisis rocking the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

It was gathered in Abuja, on Monday, that the discovery of a plot by a section of the party’s leadership to sack the National Chairman, Senator Iyiochia Ayu, was largely responsible for the postponement of the Caucus and National Executive Committee meetings of the Party earlier scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.

Ayu’s loyalists within the party’s National Working Committee and the Board of Trustees were said to have advised against convening the meetings amidst what one of the loyalists who spoke in confidence described as “a hostile environment.”

A usually reliable top-ranking source within the party hierarchy, who spoke in confidence, explained that despite platitudes “tension is still very high.”

The source said, “As far as I know, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, does not have any problem with Atiku, Ayu has not been transparent in handling party affairs since he took over.

“And the role he played during the selection of the presidential running mate won him a lot of enemies.

However, another party source said, “There is no problem, we had to postpone the meetings because our Presidential candidate is not around.

“This is the first NEC meeting we are holding since our primaries and we need the attendance of all leaders.

“We had our BoT meeting last week and we thought we could follow it up with national Caucus and NEC meeting. But we discovered there are so many things we need to handle first before doing so.

“Besides, our candidate and others who are critical stakeholders indicate that they are unavailable on the fixed date.”
