People’s Democratic Party to set up Disciplinary Committee for erring members


National Executive Committee of the People’s Democratic Party in Abuja agreed to set up a Standing Disciplinary Committee for its erring members.

The need to set up the committee was said to be the outcome of what a source described as fierce arguments by members of NEC following the 14-month crisis in the party, which ended recently with the judgment of the Supreme Court.

Before the NEC meeting was held, members of the party’s Expanded National Caucus, National Caucus and the Board of Trustees had met.

The decisions reached at these three meetings were brought to the NEC and debated by members before conclusions were reached.

Apart from the disciplinary committee, the NEC also agreed to set up a Standing Reconciliation Committee.

Spokesperson for the party, Dayo Adeyeye, said these were part of the decisions taken at the 74th NEC meeting, which was held at the party’s national secretariat.

It was gathered that majority members of the NEC voted for the establishment of the two committees, especially disciplinary committee.
