Barely few months after the inauguration of the Prof. Osita Ogbu-led caretaker committee for the Anambra state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), national chairman of the party, Prince Vincent Ogbulafor at the weekend, inaugurated new nine-member caretaker committee (SCC) to run the affairs of the party in the state.
The new interim executive, drawn mainly from indigenes of Anambra state, has Hon. Cosmas Ogugua Agagbo as chairman.
Apart from the chairman, other members of the committee include Hon. Barr Dom Obiekie, Amb. Sam Okechukwu, Hon. Emma Mbamalu, Hon. Somto Udenze and Engr. Benjamin Ezeagwu.
Also in the committee are Chief Okechukwu Nwizugbe, Mrs. Jessie Belonwu and Dr. Amanchukwu Ezeike, who is to serve as its secretary.
While inaugurating the committee at the Wadata House and PDP National Secretariat in Abuja, Ogbulafor lamented the level of disunity in the state chapter of the party and charged the caretaker committee to strive to restore the lost glory of PDP in Anambra state.
According to him, he reminded the committee members that the party used to be the primus inter paris, wondering why they cannot restore the premium position of the party and "take out rightful place as the most acceptable party in the state."
He described members of the committee as people of proven integrity who have over the years, contributed to the growth and advancement of PDP in the state and urged them to deploy their wealth of experience to ensure that those who left the PDP for one reason or the other are brought back to the family.
Other terms of reference of the committee include to within 10 days, constitute five-man caretaker committees in each of all the local government areas (LGAS) of the state, and the LGA committees to liaise with the SCC to constitute five-man congress caretaker Ccommittees (CCC) in each of the wards.
To liaise with the LGA/Ward CCC to re-register PDP members immediately and within the next 14 days, produce authentic ward membership registers for each of the wards in the state.
They are also to render periodic reports on the committeeâ€™s assignment to the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP as well as carry out any other assignment that may be given to the committee by the NWC.
The party chairman however, did not disclose why he decided to dissolve the Osita Ogbu-led committee, but remained optimistic that the new leadership of the party in the state has the capacity to re-unite all its estranged members.
Apart from Prince Ogbulafor who presided over the inauguration, other members of the PDP NWC who were present on the occasion include Prince Uche Secondus and Mrs. Inna Ciroma among others.
The tenure of the last caretaker committee for Anambra State PDP expired on February 4 this year.
