The Director-General of the Fresh PDP, Prince Obi-Nwosu Emmanuel has debunked claims by some people that the faction had collapsed.

In an announcement issued in Abuja on Sunday, Emmanuel described the report as unfaithful and shameful hearsay.

The faction had on Saturday by Chief Olukayode Akindele, introduced the cancellation of the inauguration of its parallel working committee earlier scheduled for Monday.

However, in a swift U-turn, the DG of the faction stated that the announcement was a pathetic present of unbridled poverty and greed exhibited by these people masquerading as spokespersons for the Fresh PDP.

He stated that such hypothesis was most condemnable as they don’t have the authority of the DG to talk on behalf of the group.

Read the complete textual content of the assertion:

The Director General of the Fresh PDP; Prince Obi-Nwosu Emmanuel has reacted to the declare by some people purporting to have collapsed the faction. The shameful and most pathetic present of unbridled poverty and greed exhibited by these people masquerading as spokespersons for the Fresh PDP is most condemnable as they don’t have the authority of the DG to take action.

These shameless individuals who had at numerous instances deployed very untoward means to make use of the noble Fresh PDP platform as a blackmail device for the extortion of cash from occasion leaders; have come to their final finish.

No one in his proper senses will take heed to the characters that presupposed to have collapsed such a vibrant motion just like the Fresh PDP whose ideology has unfold throughout Nigeria like wild fireplace.

For the data, my humble self and Svt. Rodney Odili-Obi had been the initiators of the Fresh PDP. Every different person who joined the motion was allowed to be part of Fresh PDP after expressing deep seated need to affix such a noble trigger that search to deal with impunity and imposition in our nice occasion.

Very many occasion leaders and members had warned us concerning the ugly antecedents of a few of these people who we allowed to affix the Fresh PDP.

They have now overtly disgraced themselves as they exhibited their inordinate need for reasonable compensation towards the excessive beliefs of correcting injustice and guaranteeing transparency within the coming occasion primaries; which Fresh PDP was established to attain.

Let it’s recognized that Fresh PDP was by no means setup as a cash searching platform, however strictly because the true PDP that may meet the goals of the founding fathers of our nice occasion. It was born out of the good necessity to deal with the injustice, impunity, imposition and corruption that characterised the ninth December 2017 National Convention of the occasion.

No particular person or group inside or outdoors Fresh PDP might be allowed to barter for pecuniary beneficial properties utilizing this noble platform.

All those who joined Fresh PDP with the corrupt mind-set of pursuing egocentric and divisive agenda; have hit the rock. We advise them to rapidly be a part of their fellow impostors who’ve mortgaged their conscience for penny.

We hereby warn all our occasion leaders and members to dissociate themselves from these questionable characters as they don’t characterize the true Initiators of the noble Fresh PDP.

May we reiterate our earlier stand that if the occasion management addresses the vital points which we now have raised and make agency dedication to make sure a stage taking part in floor for all aspirant within the coming occasion primaries, then and solely then will this platform be formally united once more with the Uche Secondus faction.

Finally, according to our imaginative and prescient to make PDP nice once more, we now have determined to setup a Central Working Committee CWC for the Fresh PDP.

This is in deference to the overwhelming opinions of members; towards our earlier plan to setup a full fledged National Working Committee NWC.

We consulted extensively with occasion leaders and members on essentially the most appropriate method to make sure that we don’t commit the identical offence we need to right and majority had been of the opinion that handpicking members of our NWC will smack of the identical impunity and imposition which we search to right.

To this finish due to this fact, the Central Working Committee CWC of the Fresh PDP; quickly to be inaugurated, will instantly start preparations for the conduct of a free and amply clear elective conference the place the genuine National Working Committee NWC of our nice occasion will emerge.
