Why PDP Chieftains Are Eager To Replace NWC Members

Top guns in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are eager for the tenure of the National Working Committee (NWC) members to come to a quick and rancor-free close by May so that the party can regenerate itself, The Guardian has learnt in Abuja.

“The idea is for these persons occupying offices presently to leave the scene because their continued stay will give the impression that nothing new is happening in the party. We will ensure that none of them continues in office so that our plan to bring about a new PDP where the attributes of the past are put behind us can materialise,” a source said yesterday.

Some party bigwigs, it was gathered, had begun the “strategic process” of ensuring that credible persons who have not been “tarred with the brush” in the ongoing corruption probe are brought on board through a democratic process.

“You will recall that they have even resolved on their own to go and give a clean slate. Even if they have not resolved to do that, no one is positively disposed towards them for now,” the source added.

These developments are coming even as the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has dismissed as baseless and untrue the report of purported tension within the party over alleged secret zoning of national offices of the party, supposedly by some leaders of the party.
