The ruling party wants all aggrieved members to return to the party.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says it will set up zonal reconciliation committees to ensure that aggrieved party members return to its fold.
The party’s National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur, said this in a statement on Thursday.
The decision was part of resolution adopted at the party`s National Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
According to Mr. Tukur, the reconciliation committees will handle lingering disagreements within the party to ensure a more united party.
In the statement, Mr. Tukur said the party`s umbrella is big enough to accommodate all aggrieved party members, who left the party or were not actively involved in party’s activities.
It called on these party members to return to the party through their wards within the next 30 days.
“The ward chairmen and secretaries should register such returning members without inhibitions.
“Anyone not allowed to go through this process should report such hindrance to the next level up to the national secretariat,” Mr. Tukur said.
Mr. Tukur called on the party National Vice Chairmen to ensure compliance with the directive.
