South West PDP divided over mode of reconciliation



By Dapo Akinrefon

THE Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the South West was, yesterday, divided over the mode of the efforts of the Governor Seriake Dickson-led reconciliation committee in the zone.

While the zonal Chairman of the party in the South-West, Dr. Eddy Olafeso said the reconciliation process was an ongoing process; a former Minister for Transport, Chief Ebenezer Babatope said the Bode George group would wait on the Dickson committee to make the move towards a concrete reconciliation.

Recall that Chairman of the PDP National Reconciliation Committee and Governor of Bayelsa State, Henry Seriake Dickson last week toured the South West and held meetings with party chieftains who contestant the National Chairmanship position but lost out to Prince Uche Secondus.

Speaking with Vanguard, Dr. Olafeso said: “The party is making efforts at reconciliation and ensuring that we position and prepare our party for the 2019 general elections. That is key.  We will rescue, we will reposition and we will regain and also ensure the survival of our party. We are also working hard at uniting our people and support the leadership to move ahead.”

When asked on the next step to prevent members leaving the party, Olafeso said: “We have already visited all the contestants, it is a continuous process, we will continue to visit and speak to them. We will also fashion out an all-inclusive party activity and we will continue to work hard that our people are brought together.”

On his part, Chief Babatope said the party leadership will determine the next line of action.

Babatope, a staunch supporter of Chief Olabode George  said: “It is not for the Bode George group to determine the next step.”
