Bauchi State Governor and the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum gave the hint after the meeting at the National Headquarters of the party in Abuja on Thursday.

Addressing reporters after the NEC meeting the Governor said, “You can see there was no dissension and rancour. It was planned that the party will have an implosion. PDP is more than that, we have given beyond all these. This party is a united party that is guided by experience and constitutionality.

“In the next two months, you will see a lot of activities, leadership is a responsibility, when we will have come out of our congresses, we will look at the issues of leadership. We will look at the constitution and we will do it with no rancor.”

Speaking in the same vein, National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba said because of the need for reconciliation the issue of the National Chairman will be revisited in August when another NEC will be expected to take place.

He said: “Our party emphasizes the need for reconciliation and stability within the party at this time. Therefore, the issue of the National Chairman, Amb Iliya Damagum, has been deferred to the next NEC meeting, which is tentatively scheduled for August 15, 2014,” Ologunagba said.
