PDP stakeholders threaten fresh crisis over returnee govs, others



There are strong indications that the suspected defection plan of some chieftains of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC), into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may leave the opposition party factionalised again, if the leadership of the party fails to address mounting grievances to the planned return of some former chieftains of the PDP to some states chapters across the country.

The former ruling party, which became factionalised after it lost the 2015 presidential election, managed to pull through the storm after the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the then Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee.

It later held a National Convention on December 9, 2017, which produced the current leadership under Uche Secondus.

A source who spoke with The Nation correspondent, disclosed that many chieftains of the party in some state chapters, are uncomfortable with some of the reported concessions offered members of the R-APC as part of the defection plan.
