Addressing journalists at the Wadata Plaza party secretariat, youth leader, Aderemi Olusegun, said the party is bigger than individuals and warned its leaders to stop toying with its survival.
He said: “As concerned youths, we deem it necessary to come together to take a firm position in the interest of party members nationwide.
“We believe that we have waited enough on the party stakeholders, since the Port Harcourt convention, to amicably resolve this lingering problem.
“In the last 24 hours, we consulted widely with different youth groups, women and patriots in our party, and we, therefore, after an emergency meeting in the National Headquarters (Wadata Plaza) resolved that we are giving the leadership of the party, which includes the BoT, Governors’ Forum, warring groups and other stakeholders, a seven-day ultimatum to resolve this intractable but avoidable rancour.
“However, if this is not resolved, we shall be compelled to mobilise all concerned youths nationwide to take over the affairs of the party, and we have started putting in place an effective structure to that end.”
