The group known as ‘Fresh PDP‘ collapsed itself fusing into the Prince Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee, (NWC).

This development is after Olukayode Akindele, the group National Chairman met with the party’s former national chairman of PDP, ‎Okwesilieze Nwodo, on Saturday in Abuja.

-I am delighted to tell you that we have collapsed into the mainstream PDP.

-We have assurances from our leaders and the we will not have a parallel NWC Monday,” Akindele said while addressing newsmen, adding that they decided to collapse the parallel party in the interest of Nigeria and the 2019 general elections.

‎Nwodo, while also speaking on collapse of the “Fresh PDP”, said -If the Fresh PDP was allowed to form a structure on Monday, they would have given legitimacy to our members to leave the PDP.

-We have learnt our lessons and we are coming back more prepared and resolute to change the fortunes of this country”

He said the reconciliation was‎ reached with the knowledge of the Board of Trustees (BoT), the National Working Committee (NWC) and other organs of the party.
