The Reconciliation Committee of the PDP has released what it termed a ‘code of conduct’ for its members as well as how it plans to go about reconciling the aggrieved members of the party.
The Committee, which is headed by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State gagged its members from speaking to the press without securing a formal authorization to do so as part of the said code of conduct.
In a statement signed by its Secretary Ambassador Umar Damagun, the Committee further said: “In order to boost the level of confidence among our members nationwide while this committee undertakes its assignment, no member shall interact with the media on any matter under consideration by the committee, except with due approval by the committee or its leadership.”
The Committee also pledged a commitment to the principles of neutrality and impartiality and said: “To this end, no member of the committee shall serve in any congress committee in a state where such a member is an interested party.”
“Similarly, no member of the committee shall hold any inappropriate meetings or contacts with any party member whose matter is under consideration of the committee especially as regards to the subject-matter under discussion at the committee,”
