ABUJA— LEADERS of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) splinter group yesterday met with members of the 2007 Movement in the National Assembly. Sources close to the factional leaders told Vanguard that a team of six officers of the National Interim Management Committee set up by the faction had a preliminary discussion with the leaders of the movement at a residence in Asokoro.
The PDP faction was led by former National Chairman (North) of the party, Alhaji Ibrahim Safana, while the 2007 Movement was led by Senator Uche Chukwumerije.
The talks centred on the on-going legal tussle brought about by the emergence of the faction within the party.
It was learnt that the leadership of the 2007 Movement agreed to have a broader meeting with the group last night with a view to working out modalities for collaboration.
Meanwhile, National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, has called on Nigerians to be prepared to defend their votes during the 2007 elections. Chief Nwosu made the call in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday entitled: “It is in our hands, let’s do it.”
According to him, “Nigerians should not allow themselves to be cowed any longer in view of the level of corruption and insincerity on the part of the PDP-led government. What has happened to the recovered loots of the previous administrations and the funds retrieved from the dismissed principal actors of the present government? Due process has become due privilege to Nigeria leaders of today. The world cannot be deceived. The inadequacies of our leaders are glaring and for all patriotic Nigerians, this is a call to duty.”
