The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the perceived crisis over the PDP reform conference is as a result of communication gap between the various organs of the party.
Metuh said the NWC has no hidden agenda concerning the party’s national reform conference, adding that all organs and stakeholders of the PDP must be involved to avoid complaints and crisis in the future.
Speaking with newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, PDP national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh said there was  communication gap between the NWC  and the Professor Jerry Gana’s reform conference committee leading to confusion among the ranks and files within the party.
The NWC had Wednesday, postponed the conference in a statement by PDP national secretary, Professor Wale Oladipo, in what many believed was a way of stopping the committee from meeting to probably deliberate and probe or dissolve the NWC.
The Jerry Gana’s committee was raised to re-ignite the noble ideals and good image of the PDP, restore the party’s core values and directive principles,re-mobilise nationwide support for the PDP and re-organise the party to ensure effective transfer of power to the people.
Others are to revive and ensure the practice of genuine internal democracy within the party, zero tolerance for corruption, promotion of transparency in governance and fresh ideas on people-oriented programmes.
Metuh said the PDP Governors’ Forum (PDPGF), BoT, NEC and the NWC are on the same page of repositioning the party, adding that the reform conference will hold in due course where all issues concerning the party will be thrashed out.
"There was communication gap. Professor Jerry Gana proceeded before he got the letter of the NWC. Despite that, immediately the advertisement was aired, the NWC was bombarded with lots of complaints saying why did we spread the membership of the committee to include some of those who have left the party, including a lot of people whom they felt should have been involved and not those who walked out on this party.
"We will receive Ekweremadu committee report next week, we will send copies of the report to the Governors Forum, we will send copies to the BOT, National Caucus and to the zones, there will be inputs. And before they add inputs, they would have studied it thoroughly. Then we will immediately convoke a national
conference that will involve all interests," he said.
