A section of the Peoples Democratic Party in Plateau State loyal to Senator Jeremiah Useni has dissociated itself from the just concluded PDP Congress in the State describing it as a Charade.
Speaking during a Stakeholders meeting, Senator Jeremiah Useni explained that a reconciliation committee made up of 3 members each from the two groups was constituted by Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State to reconcile both groups only for the Senator Jonah Jang group to go ahead with the Congress.
He emphasised that his group would also produce its own officials to run the affairs of the Party.
Useni who alleged that the National leadership of the Party was supporting the other group, described their action as unfortunate.
Other members of the group made up of past State and National elected officers of the party expressed support for Senator Useni, stressing that they will not leave the party.
They all agreed to take all necessary action towards finding a logical conclusion to the challenges facing the party.
