The Board of Trustee, BOT, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and leader PDP peace committee, Senator Adolphus Wabara, has urged his party men to watch what they say and allow the committee to resolve the lingering crisis in the party.
Wabara stated this while speaking with journalists in Makurdi, on Wednesday, after he led the party’s peace committee on a consultation meeting with Governor Samuel Ortom.
Wabara who called on members to support the committee for lasting solution said, “There is no family without problems and that is exactly why we have come to the head to encourage us with suggestions to solve the problems.
“As I said earlier, there is no problems without solution. We should just watch our utterances, because we will all come back to the same table in the interest of Nigerians.
“It is only PDP that can deliver the nation and provide dividends of democracy like we did in the past 16 years when we were in power. God just asked us to give way, eight years, for Nigerians to judge for themselves.”
He promised that the committee which he described as the conscience of the party will look into the issues and come out with a decision very soon. While promising to reach out to all the groups, the BOT chairman appealed to governor Ortom to create the enabling environment to enable them reach out to others.
Also speaking, Governor Ortom commended the Senator Wabara-led peace committee for their peace efforts.
He said, “I have been with Wike. We are friends. We are colleagues and we share common understanding on these issues. I commend the BOT for taking these steps because reconciliation is very key and that is why I said that the party leadership would have deployed its internal conflict resolution mechanism long ago. I commend this effort, reaching out, discussing and dialoguing.
“Politics as I know, over 40 years of practice, is full of conflict but you must get to discussing it and finding solutions. People have diverse interest. You must look at it and see how there can be a win win.
“But treating people as if they are nothing or they have no value, does not make sense to me. They have seen me, we have discussed, they are also going to see other governors and I believe that at the end of the day, we shall do something that will bring us together.
“I’m an a grieved person too and that is why they came. I’m not happy with leadership of the party on what they are doing. Leadership is collective. We should be working together.”
