Members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party yesterday admitted crack in their fold, but thanked the Board of Trustees of the party for its quick intervention.
The PDP leadership had tactically disagreed on the decisions taken on Adamawa PDP state executive, with ten out of the twelve NWC members rescinding on an earlier decision.
The ten members who briefed the press Tuesday were: Deputy National Chairman, Dr. Sam Sam Jaja, National Secretary, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, National Organizing Secretary, Alhaji Abubakar Mustapha, National Women Leader, Dr. Kema Chikwe, National Financial Secretary, Elder Bolaji Anani, National Legal Adviser, Mr. Victor Kwom, National Auditor, Bode Mustapha, National Youth Leader, Alhaji Umar Chiza, National Treasurer, Alhaji Bala Kaoje and National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.
Their position on Adamawa had placed them against the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Bamanga Tukur.
However, the presidency had intervened with President Goodluck Jonathan inviting all of them for a meeting at the villa where their differences were resolved.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh writing on the fence mending of the NWC said, "The Peoples Democratic Party has commended its Board of Trustees for the prompt resolution of the misunderstanding in the National Working Committee of the Party.
"PDP remains the only political party in the country where differences in the leadership of its various organs could be resolved within a record time.
“In a political party as large as the PDP, divergent opinions on issues are normal but in the ability of its leaders to resolve and find a common ground on such issues, dwells the strength and dynamism of such an organization. In this instance, it is only in the PDP that misunderstandings are not just resolved but done in matter of hours.
"The National Working Committee of the PDP therefore wishes to commend the Board of Trustees of the Party for proving its role as the conscience of the Party.
"The National Working Committee wishes to further assure all members of the PDP of the unwavering unity of purpose in our ranks. We are united under the able and dynamic leadership of our National Chairman, Dr. Bamanga Tukur.
"We are ever determined to ensure that the Party fulfills its electoral promises to the people by securing an undiluted compliance of all our members in various positions of authority to a credible performance target".
