The Kogi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has inaugurated a 12-member post party primary Crisis Management and Reconciliation Committee under the leadership of Senator Tunde Ogbeha.
The committee is charged with the responsibility of reconciling every aggrieved member of the party and to reconcile members on other related crises arising from the fallout of the last party primary elections in the state.
The State Chairman of the PDP, Engr. Sam Uhotu, while inaugurating the committee, said the party had confidence in the capability of the members to bring all aggrieved persons together, and described members of the committee as men and women of proven integrity.
While noting that all indices point to the fact that the PDP would win overwhelmingly in the forthcoming general election, Uhotu stressed that the party wanted to carry everyone along, which was reason for the need for reconciliation.
He thanked the chairman of the committee, Sen. Tunde Ogbeha, for his selfless service to the party at all times, and urged him to bring his wealth of experience to bear in reconciling aggrieved members of the party.
