The David Mark-led Reconciliation Committee set up by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has kicked against the sacking of its Chairman, Uche Secondus.

The committee warned that sacking the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party headed by Secondus before the expiration of its tenure may plunge the opposition party into many legal battles.

It was gathered that the Mark committee recommended that the new committee that would be elected at the party’s convention should only resume duties after the expiration of the present NWC’s tenure in December 9.

The panel noted that Secondus who had agreed to withdraw cases in court is yet to do so because Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has not agreed to also withdraw cases he instituted.

The reconciliation committee however have the PDP the go ahead to conduct it’s National Convention.

The panel recommended: “That Governor Wike and Chairman Secondus withdraw all court cases to allow for smooth convention. While Governor Wike has not consented to that yet, Chairman Secondus however promised to withdraw the cases if the other party does the same.

“That those beating the drums of war behind the scene are urged to stop beating the drums.

“That the Governors Forum should point the way forward. That there is a need for the governors to continue to be united.”

The committee report was signed by Senator Mark; Governor Darius Ishaku; a former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chief Tom Ikimi; a former Minister of Communications, Haliru Bello Mohammed; a former National Chairman of PDP, ex-Governor Okwesilieze Nwodo; a former Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Alhaji Shuaibu Oyedokun; a former Minister of Women Affairs, Hajiya Inna Ciroma; and the Senate Minority Leader, Sen.
