Adamawa: PDP National Working Committee disowns Bamanga Tukur



Members of the National working committee (NWC) of PDP rose from a meeting Tuesday in Abuja watching their hands off the on-going ward, local government and state congresses of the party in Adamawa Sate. The NWC members said that the purported congresses were neither authorized by the NWC nor monitored and/or supervised by the National Secretariat.

Below is the full text of The Release:

(1) The NWC in its 325th meeting of Wednesday 12th December 2012 had rescinded the dissolution of the PDP Adamawa State Executive.

(2) The NWC had earlier dissolved the Adamawa State Executive under Article 29(2)(b) wherein we acted on behalf of Article 31(2)(e) powers of the NEC. But it is instructive to note that the Ward and Local government executives of Adamawa State were never dissolved.

“In fact at its 314th meeting of 29th August 2012 the NWC had upheld the March 2012 ward and local government executives except for one LGA which was later ratified.

“(3) The NWC is therefore surprised, shocked and embarrassed to read in the Newspapers of the purported ward, local government and state congresses said to be on going in Adamawa State.

“(4) For the records, the National Working Committee, hereby dissociate the Party leadership from the purported congresses which were neither authorized by the NWC nor monitored and/or supervised by the National Secretariat.

“In the history of the PDP only the National Secretariat of the PDP conducts state congresses.

“Based upon the above therefore the NWC hereby declare the purported congresses null, void and of no effect whatsoever.

“Consequently we hereby declare that the only state executive committee constitutionally recognized by this Party is the Kaugama Executive lawfully elected in March 2012 and endorsed by the National Convention.
