The forum of PDP state Chairmen meeting was chaired by Hon. Obong Paul Ekpo, the Chairman of the Forum and Chairman of Akwa Ibom state chapter of the PDP.
It was gathered that 26 out of 32 Chairmen attended the meeting and the Forum received apologies from 3 other Chairmen.
At the end of the meeting, the PDP State Chairmen Forum asked members to disregard the purported meeting by some individuals on March 17, 2017 in the name of PDP State Chairmen Forum.
The Forum took serious objections to it, saying that it’s only Hon. Paul Ekpo, the Chairman of Akwa Ibom State PDP that has the power to call any meeting of the PDP state Chairmen.
The Forum appreciated the efforts of the former President Goodluck Jonathan to proffer political solution to the leadership crisis in the party and urged party members to unit with him.
The Forum thanked Governor Dickson’s reconciliation committee but advised that the report of the committee be submitted to all the organs of the Party for their imputes and contributions.
The Forum declared their support to all the executives of the Party elected at the Wards, LGAs and State levels before the May 21, 2016 Convention in line with the court of appeal judgment.
Finally, the Forum also frowned at the illegal appointment of officers at the National Secretariat and advised that the party revert to status quo as ordered by the Appeal Court.
