The fear of the coalescing of the opposition parties under the All Progressives Congress (APC) is gradually forcing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to re-think its strategy, with the party holding an emergency meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) on how to embark on zonal reconciliation tours to assuage aggrieved members of the party. The emergency NWC meeting which took place at the Wuse II residence of the National Chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, had all members of the NWC in attendance.
In line with the reconciliatory efforts, the governors of the party will today meet on how to have a rancour free meeting that would pave way for the convening of the long overdue National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party.
However, the leadership of the PDP has thrown its weight behind the position of President Goodluck Jonathan that the military Joint Task
Force (JTF) would only be withdrawn from Borno State, if the elders of the states commit to the inviolable undertaking that makes them responsible for further killings and destruction by the Boko Haram sect.
