New PDP Visits Senate

The Kawu Baraje led PDP has paid a visit to the Senate where they briefed the Senate leadership about their grouse with the Tukur-led National Working Committee of the PDP.
Baraje said they decided to visit the Senate leaders because of its strategic importance in the resolution of the PDP crisis.
He noted with concern that the democratic image of the PDP started declining in  recent years due to  the lack of internal democracy caused by the  interference of  the Presidency.
The New PDP chairman said the development had affected the quality of the party   and style of leadership  “that now takes pride in illegal dissolution of states’ party structures and other acts of impunity.”
Apart from the initial demands of the governors, Baraje asked the Senate leaders to ignore the calls on them to declare  the seats of Senators loyal to  the New PDP vacant.
Responding, the President of the Senate, David Mark, assured  the team that all  the  issues it raised would be addressed dispassionately.
He said the Senate  would not declare the seat of any Senator vacant on account of the current crisis within the PDP.
