PDP may lock out workers on Tuesday

PDP raises panel to probe erring members

National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party plans to lock the gate to the National Secretariat against the party’s workers on Tuesday.

The two warring factions had, over the weekend, engaged in exchange of words over the planned sack of about 50 per cent of the workforce.

Operating under the aegis of PDP Staff Welfare,the workers  accused the NWC of financial sleaze and indifference to their plight.

The PDP workers group expressed grave concern over a recent circular issued by the National Secretary of the party, Professor Wale Oladipo, terminating the appointment of a sizeable number of the workforce.

The party leaders, however, said it took the decision to weed out those that are suspected to be moles in the party.

Some of the workers were said to have been brought into the party by their godfathers who have since defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The fear in the PDP is that these people who still owe allegiance to the godfathers may be passing sensitive information and documents to their benefactors who are now in the APC.

A member of BoT assured that no one will be witch-hunted in the exercise.

It was gathered that the workers have already gone to court through Femi Falana chambers who has assigned a lawyer to handle the matter at the National Industrial Court (NIA).

The PDP staff are still threatening to press on with their petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
