PDP Constitution Review Committee Submits Report

NATIONAL leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said yesterday that with what obtained at the moment, the PDP remained the party of choice in Nigeria. The leadership of the party, yesterday, received the report of the 50-man Constitution Review Committee. The Committee led by the party’s National Legal Adviser, Mr. Victor Kwon, was inaugurated last month with the mandate to present proposals that would help reposition and strengthen the party for victory in 2019 presidential election. PDP’s Acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, while inaugurating the committee last month, said members of the Committee were also expected to review the report of the Post Elections Review Committee, led by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and use some of its recommendations in the new constitution, with the aim of correcting the party’s mistakes in the last general elections. Presenting the report yesterday, Kwon, who noted that the work by members of the Committee was thorough, said it would go a long way in addressing the expectations of the party faithful. “From the report and robust debates we encountered, I am of the conviction that PDP is still the party of choice in Nigeria. That was demonstrated abundantly,” he said. Receiving the report, Acting National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, who thanked the Committee for reflecting the views of the party members across the country, however, disclosed that the report would be circulated to its various chapters and organs before final ratification by the national convention.
