Crisis Looms In Abia PDP Over Congress, Group Calls For Action

Crisis is looming in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abia State chapter following congresses that were held before the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. This is even as a group, Progressive PDP Members in Abia State (PPMAS) has called on leaders of the party in the state to act immediately to save the party from implosion.

The group in a release stated how guidelines were made available and followed during the congress, but regretted that after the exercise, a national officer of the party from the state doctored results of the congresses for selfish reasons.

According to the group, “The party gave the guidelines that should be meticulously adhered to, so as to achieve a popular Congress that shall harness the strength of our Party and fortify us for the battle ahead.

“These guidelines were followed and the Congress held and produced popular and generally accepted results. These results emerged with zero petitions thereby rendering the need for the functions of the Congress appeal panel unnecessary”.

The group said it was heart-rending that two months after the congress, a national officer of the party from the state, produced results different from the original ones.

“It’s quite disheartening that the alterations of the results affected virtually the 17 Local Government Areas of Abia State and her corresponding Wards. This huge carelessness and avoidable mistakes have threatened to destroy the PDP in Abia State”.

While describing what has happened as a misnomer that has never occurred before in the state chapter of PDP, PPMAS said the looming disaster waiting to happen to the party should be addressed immediately.

“Our members have started drifting to other political parties due to this problem. We must note the incidences of Zamfara and River States APC unforeseen disaster that denied them participation during the last election”, the group warned.
