Some groups in the Niger Delta on Monday, warned that the persistent crises in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, if not checked, could trigger a dangerous implosion against the party ahead 2015 general elections.
The Concerned PDP Stakeholders, led by the Arepumo-owei of Kabowei Kingdom in Delta State; Coalition of Ijaw Groups in the Niger Delta and Niger Delta Youths for Positive Attitude, gave the warning while speaking separately with reporters in Warri, Delta State; Yenagoa, Bayelsa State and Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
Chief Mike Loyibo, who heads the Concerned PDP Stakeholders expressed concern over the suspension of the governor of Sokoto State, Dr. Aliyu Wamakko by PDP National Working Committee, and urged the party “to rescind the decision in the interest of party cohesion in Sokoto State.”
Agidee said: “You do not suspend a performing government and bridge builder. Rather than suspension, the party should exhaust all existing alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to amicably resolve their differences.”
Mr. Emmanuel Enisuo of Niger Delta Youths for Positive Attitude, who spoke in Port-Harcourt, decried the machination against Governor Rotimi Amaechi.
He noted: “Governor Amaechi is somebody that has brought back our values; built schools instead of sharing guns; and given the Niger-Delta child what his parent could not give him.
