Former governor of Kwara State who was also the immediate past Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has warned the National Working Committee (NWC) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) not to interfere in the work of the National Reconciliation Committee. Saraki said at the inauguration of the team on Wednesday in Abuja.
He requested the cooperation of party stakeholders including the NWC, National Executive Committee (NEC), Board of Trustees, PDP Governors Forum, and the National Assembly caucus.
“We are however very clear that our most important partner in this assignment is the NWC. Therefore, we seek your support and co-operation to ensure the success of this committee on its Herculean assignment”, Saraki said.
“As members of this committee, we have decided to do only what is right. We do not have any personal interest and will not allow any interest other than of the party and what represents the truth, equity, objectivity, unity and peace to influence what we will do.
“The NWC must also give us free hand to operate. I want to make it very clear that we will put in our best. That is why we seek the cooperation of the NWC.
“However, if we see any sign that the NWC is working to undermine us or that we are not working in sync in the performance of this assignment, with all sense of responsibility, we will not hesitate to tender our resignation. That is what the members of the committee have asked me to convey to you, Mr. Chairman.”
The committee also has former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim, ex-Governors of Cross River – Liyel Imoke; Gombe – Ibrahim Dankwambo; Katsina – Ibrahim Shema, and Hon. Mulikat Akande.
