The ruling party’s leadership had suspended the convention committee’s proceedings.
Two major organs of Nigeria’s ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday resolved their differences after a crucial meeting.
The National Working Committee led by the national chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, and the Special National Convention Committee, led by a former minister, Jerry Gana, met at the party secretariat in Abuja.
Leaders of both committees announced the resolution of the crisis after a meeting at Mr. Tukur’s office in the secretariat. They also said the convention committee will be formally inaugurated on Wednesday by 2:00 p.m.
“All issues affecting the forthcoming convention and congresses have been resolved,” Mr. Tukur said. “And all party faithful should know that the convention committee and the party are one and working together.”
Mr. Gana confirmed the resolution of the crisis, saying “all the issues concerning the planning, execution, and arrangement towards the national convention have been fully resolved.”
The NWC had suspended all activities of the convention committee last week.
Apart from Mr. Gana, other members of the convention committee in attendance include Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom and Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
Members of the NWC in attendance aside Mr. Tukur include Mr. Nwuche and Tony Okeke.
