The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and it’s leadership failed on Tuesday to end the crisis in the Imo State chapter of the party.
The state chapter has been divided following a disagreement between members loyal to the PDP National Secretary, Senator Samuel Anyanwu and those loyal to Emeka Ihedioha, a former governor of the state.
The crisis got complicated at the constitution of the Imo State chapter of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
This pitched some chieftains of the party against the State Working Committee (SWC) over allegations of exclusion.
The supporters of the both groups met in a meeting Tuesday. But the meeting called by the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) to resolve the differences failed.
The meeting, which lasted over five hours, according to sources, failed to resolve the matter. Consequently, the party resolved to involve the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in order to resolve the crisis.
