S'Court verdict: Be hopeful, Dickson enjoins PDP leaders

The Governor of Bayelsa State, Henry Seriake Dickson has enjoined the leadership and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to lose hope, and remain in the party, reports ITRealms.

This assurance, ITRealms reports, came on the heel of the anticipation of the Supreme Court judgement on the PDP national leadership tussle.

A press statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Adviser (Media Relations), Francis Agbo, and made available to ITRealms, said that what the PDP needed at this juncture to play its role as a leading opposition voice was genuine reconciliation founded on compromises and forgiveness.

Dickson who was speaking out of concern, following the defection of PDP members to other parties as well as reports of PDP leaders floating alternative political platforms, said if PDP leaders had accepted the reconciliation template formulated by his committee, a unity national convention would have held this month to elect its national leadership.

This, he believes, would have put to rest the leadership crisis rocking the party, decrying instead, some party leaders opted for the court option which he stressed can only adjudicate and not reconcile feuding parties. 

Governor Dickson said political leaders in Nigeria exert too much pressure on the judiciary by failing to do things rightly, by failing to build consensus as well as refusing to respect laid down rules of politics. He therefore, advised political leaders to stop relying on the judiciary to resolve what is essentially an internal party affair, stressing that internal disputes can best be resolved through a political solution!

The Governor said the failure of the PDP leaders to unite, especially after the loss of federal power, has  weakened the party across the country especially in states like Edo, Ondo, Benue, Lagos and others where governorship/local government elections had held and are about to hold.

Dickson said his committee has not relented on reconciliation and confidence building in the party, irrespective of the lingering litigation and promised to address PDP faithful after the Supreme Court judgement!
