The PDP announced Thursday that Southwest, North-East & North Central congresses has been fixed for April 10.
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state on Friday told the People’s Democatic Party (PDP) to tread carefully particularly in regards of the zonal congresses fixed for April 10.
Makinde said the PDP risks dire consequences if it allows undue interference in its decisions, warning the National Working Committee (NWC) against shifting the Southwest Zonal Congress.
“The NWC must not reward these individuals who are working against the party’s overall interests. Any attempt to shift the Southwest Congress date from April 10 is a signal that the hierarchy has been compromised.
“Such an action would have dire consequences. For one thing, we will be forced to take all necessary measures to take back our party.”
However, he said he was glad that the NWC gave room to superior reasoning and logic regarding the event.
Speaking further, the governor urged party leaders to remain steadfast and oppose “divisive elements” determined to exert their resolutions at the national level.”
He regretted that some people are determined to factionalise the party despite the efforts of the reconciliation committee to bring the party together and ensure peace reigns.
Nonetheless, he said the PDP remains the best alternative for Nigerians and should be expending its energies on positioning the party properly.
Makinde charged the NWC to rise to its responsibilities and prevail on the persons acting as clogs in the wheel of the party’s progress to change.
