The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has begged aggrieved members of the party over outcome of the Dec. 9 National Convention to explore the opportunities provided by the party’s National Reconciliation Committee.
Ologbondiyan said after certain concerns on the outcome of the convention, PDP conflict resolution mechanism had began to address issues that would engender continuous harmony in the party.
He said it would be unacceptable for any member to act outside the means provided by the party’s constitution.
According to him, majority of PDP members who contested for the positions accepted the decision of the Committee to reconvene on January in good faith, and in the greater interest of PDP.
“It is, however, strange, unacceptable and outside every known law and regulation that a group of individuals will come together and claim to have formed a splinter group of our great party.
“It is also unacceptable for such group to even attempt to use our colour, name and logo unauthorised.
“It is therefore imperative to inform all our members that our party is one, indivisible and united PDP and that all organs of the party.
“The National Executive Committee (NEC), the Board of Trustees (BOT) as well as our state organs are all intact, thus foreclosing any basis for any form of factionalisation whatsoever.
“We urge any of our members who may feel strongly about the outcome of the generally accepted National Convention to explore the opportunities provided by Dickson-led Committee in line with the constitution of our great party.
“Thereafter, any person who for any selfish reason resort to the ignoble
part of attempting to create disaffection and disunity in our party will be made to face the consequences.
“Such a person would face the consequences of his or her actions as provided for in the constitution of our great party and extant laws of the land.
“A word, they say, is enough for the wise.’’
