Plateau PDP State Excos Get Tenure Extension as State Caretaker Committee

As the tenure of the present Executives of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State expires on 10th May, 2020, the National Working Committee of the Party has approved the reconstitution of the present State Executive Committee Members into State Caretaker Committee.

This decision was contained in a letter addressed to the State Chairman of the Party, Hon. Gwott Yakubu Chocho dated 6th May, 2020 duly signed by the National Organizing Secretary, Col. Austin Akobundu (Rtr).

The letter reads:

RECONSTITUTION OF ALL CURRENT STATE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEMBERS (EXCO MEMBERS) INTO STATE CARETAKER COMMITTEE IN PLATEAU STATE

I wish to formally informed you that the National Working Committee (NWC) of our great party, on behalf of the National Executive Council (NEC) has, pursuant to Section 29(2)(b) and 31(2)(e) of our great party's Constitution (2017 as amended), approved the reconstitution of the current State Executive Committee Members of your State into State Caretaker Committee.

Accordingly, the current Exco Members upon the expiring of the tenure act as Caretaker Committee to run the affairs of the Party until a new State Executive Committee is elected; provided that they shall not serve in such capacity for more than 3 Months from May 10th, 2020.

You may recall that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Country and the Federal Government's Stay-at-Home directives, our scheduled State Congress in your State could not be conducted. Bearing mind that the tenure of the current State Exco will be expiring within the next few days and in order to avoid leaving a vacuum, the NWC considers it necessary and urgent to take this action on behalf of NEC.

Please treat urgent and acknowledge the receipt of this letter.

While thanking you for your cooperation and hard work, please accept the assurances of the NWC's highest regards.
