Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

The Free­dom Group in Kwara State Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has back­tracked on its ear­lier re­jec­tion of the re­sult of the re­cent state congress of the party.

The group said it has re­solved to close ranks and forge ahead af­ter re­view­ing its ear­lier po­si­tion on the mat­ter.

The group had pe­ti­tioned the na­tional sec­re­tariat of the party ac­cus­ing the for­mer care­taker com­mit­tee chair­man, Solomon Edoja, of com­pro­mise.

Daily Trust gath­ered that the Congress Ap­peal Panel sat on the com­plaints aris­ing from the elec­tion and con­cluded that the congress, con­ducted by a five-man panel led by Se­na­tor Barn­abas Ge­made, was free and fair and up­held the re­sults.

A state­ment by spokesman of the Free­dom Group, Al­haji Ta­judeen Ka­reem, said at a rec­on­cil­i­a­tion meet­ing held in Abuja be­tween the newly elected chair­man and lead­ers of the group led by Bar­ris­ter Kunle Su­ly­man, that “ev­ery­one re­solved to bury their grievances, close ranks and work to­gether in the in­ter­est of the party and the state”.

The state­ment added that the meet­ing ex­am­ined the lapses no­ticed in the con­duct of the congress and re­viewed the roles played by elders and of­fi­cials of the party.
