DICKSON`s COMMITTEE RECORDS QUICK WIN.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Reconciliation Committee chaired by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has recorded a quick win yesterday following the application filed by the plaintiffs to discontinue the suit seeking to stop the forthcoming PDP national convention. The case with Suit No. CV/2418/13 was brought before a Federal Capital Territory High Court in Apo, Abuja chaired by Justice Suleiman Belgore by three aggrieved PDP members- Abba K . Yale, Yahaya A. Sule and Bashir Maidugu.
Lawyer to the plaintiffs, FN Nwosu filed papers yesterday withdrawing the matter for the Dickson’s committee to amicably address their grievance.
Since his clients had applied for the discountinuance of the matter, Barr. Nwosu told the court that the most logical thing to do was to strike out the suit to save the PDP from unnecessary delay in the conduct of its primary. But justice Belgore adjourned it to September.
In a press statement jointly signed by the plaintiffs, they pledged to support and cooperate with the committee and all other agencies of the PDP in order to have a hitch-free national convention of the party. They also praised Governor Dickson for brokering peace between and the party and urged all aggrieved party members that ditched the party to take advantage of the window provided by the Dickson’s committee with the view to addressing their grievances.
Although the case has been adjourned to September 23 political analysts reckon that for persuading the aggrieved party men to drop the case, the Dickson’s committee has achieved a major feat.
Following the intervention of the Governor Dickson’s committee, the politicians withdrew the suit in the interest of the party.
