Courts can’t give us a party, says Plateau PDP
Courts can’t give us a party, says Plateau PDP

The Peoples Democratic Pary, PDP in plateau has called for out-of-court settlement of all intra-party crises, saying that “courts can’t give us a party’’.

The party’s Chairman in the state, Damishe Sango, made the call while addressing journalists shortly after a joint Caucus and Executive Committee meeting at the party’s secretarieat in Jos.

“The meeting noted with concern, the lingering crisis withing the party at the national level.

“Having noted that the courts cannot form a party, the meeting was unanimous in acknowledging the fact that we cannot afford to allow the crisis linger on for a while.

“We call on all relevant stakeholders to think outside the box with a view to tackling the issue head on,’’ he said.

Sango said that the meeting received with sadness, the incident of Friday, when one Gyang Bandung and some people attempted to force their way into the party secretariat with protection from armed police men.

According to him, the May 2016 State Congress is adjudged to be free and fair and therefore, condemns in strong terms, all forces both within and outside the party which masterminded the move.

Consequently, he disclosed the constitution of a seven-man disciplinary committee to deal with erring members following the faction’s action.

Sango said that the party could no longer tolerate the indiscipline being perpetrated by some of its members, particularly two of them who allegedly spearheaded a revolt at its secretariat.

“Due to the need to check the excesses of members and to bring order within the rank and file of the party, we decided to constitute a disciplinary committee, ’’ he said.
