The party scribe urged members to explore internal resolution mechanisms.
“Our quest to rebuild and reposition our party had started in earnest with the membership registration exercises, Ward Congresses and the just concluded Local Government Congresses. Of course, with the sheer magnitude of these exercises there may be persons who could feel dissatisfied with the entire process.
“Therefore in line with the Constitution of our party; and the operating guidelines for the LG Congresses, the party had set up this Appeals Committee, so that such persons may approach and ventilate their grievances through this channel.
“Our party members should not forget that this is a family affair, so as you go forth to your various states of assignment, you must ensure that fair-hearing and justice be your guiding principles.
“It is also important to state that the party shall enforce discipline and full compliance with the directives of NEC with regards to those who have taken the party to court as enshrined in Article 21D of the party’s Constitution.
“Recall that the National Chairman of the CECPC, Governor Mai Mala Buni recently approved the constitution of a National Reconciliation Committee headed by Sen. Abdullahi Adamu. The party is grateful for your sacrifices and wishes you journeying mercies to and from your various destinations,” he noted.
