President Jonathan meets PDP’s National Working Committee over intra-party crisis

In a bid to resolve the intra-party crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), President Goodluck Jonathan last night met with members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

Members of the committee started arriving the Presidential Villa around 6.30 p.m. for the meeting that was said to be ‘private’ and not for media coverage.

Among those who arrived early for the meeting include the the party’s Women leader, Kema Chikwe and National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

The meeting was still on-going as at the time of filing this report

Following the poor performance of the party at the polls, there were calls for the resignation of the PDP National Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu.

Some members of the NWC had also blamed the presidency for the woes that befell the party during the election.

Because of the rift, Mu’azu and members of the committee had stayed away from the Presidential Villa when the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation’s report was presented by its Director General, Ahmadu Ali to President Jonathan on April 30.
