PDP moves to review Rivers Caretaker Committee

From Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja

The  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) has said it is set to review the Caretaker Committee of River State chapter.

The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, yesterday, said the issue was part of discussion at a meeting of the NWC on Tuesday.

The appointment of the Rivers State committee has been trailed by controversy, with the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara kicking against the composition.

Nevertheless, Ologunagba said   “after an extensive deliberation the NWC noted the existence of an ex-parte Order issued by the Federal High Court, Abuja restraining the NWC from further action with respect to the status of the Rivers State Caretaker Committee List as published.

“However, while the Rivers State Caretaker Committee List as published stands in compliance with the Order of the Court, the NWC notes the concerted intervention and efforts of various Organs of the Party, particularly the PDP Governors’ Forum to finding a political solution to the issue of the River State Caretaker Committee.

“The NWC, therefore, resolved to, in conjunction with the PDP Governors’ Forum, intensify action in the continuing consultation to resolving the issues of the Rivers State PDP Chapter amicably.”
