Makinde reports National Legal Adviser to NWC - PDP congress
Tiamiyu Saheed Oluwatosin
The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday, urged the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to call the National Legal Adviser to order for him to ensure rancour-free zonal congresses.
Makinde made the call while briefing newsmen on Thursday at the Government House, Ibadan.
He said that the South-West zone was ready for the congresses, adding that leaders were working towards a united party.
Makinde decried that the PDP was the plaintiff and defendant in the same case.
“The National Legal Adviser of PDP has not done well. When the issue of the party structure in Lagos came up, I met him personally and advised him that, look, we have alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in this country, especially when it’s an internal affair of the PDP.
“He said, “No, we are going to defeat them in court”. But I was of the opinion that if we defeat them in court, what exactly are you going to get out of it? Now, he has started the same antics with the South-West zonal congress.
“How can you file a case and then you instruct legal representation for the plaintiff and for the defendants? I don’t think that is acceptable. So, we expect the National Working Committee of the party to deal with that decisively.”
On the South-West caucus meeting, Makinde said zoning arrangement for the positions of zonal executives was affirmed.
It was also agreed that each state would put together a unity list ahead of congress.
The governor, in spite of that, expressed disappointment that the NWC plans to postpone the South-West congress because some people have approached the court to complain about the venue.
