PDP crisis worsens as new faction emerges
 
 
 
 
 
The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is far from over as a new faction of the party has emerged.
 
The new group led by one Emmanuel Nwosu has opened an office at 10, Tito Bros street, opposite Bon Hotel (former Protea Hotel) in Asokoro, Abuja.
 
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Nwosu said the name of the new group is ‘Fresh PDP’.
 
He spoke at a time when PDP leaders converged on Nicon Hotel, Abuja, for a two-day retreat for its newly elected officers
 
Nwosu said some prominent members of the PDP were behind the new party but refused to disclose their identities.
 
“We own this party. Those who wanted to hijack the party during the December 9th national convention were not even in PDP when it was formed in 1998,” he said.
 
“We won’t allow usurpers take over our party. The unity list was imposed on us on December 9th and we are resisting it now.”
 
Many people were unhappy after the last PDP convention which ushered in the current members of the national working committee led by Uche Secondus.
 
Although, a committee headed by Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa state, has reached out to many aspirants who lost out, there are clear indications that peace is yet to be restored.
 
Taoheed Adedoja, one of the chairmanship aspirants, has already filed a suit in court, seeking that the convention be nullified.
