Chairman of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Reconciliation Committee and Bayelsa State Governor Henry Seriake Dickson has hailed Oyo-born former PDP National chairmanship aspirant, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja, for withdrawing his suit against the party.
The suit had challenged the party’s national convention, which produced Prince Uche Seconds as national chairman in the party’s December 2017 convention.
A statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Francis Ottah Agbo, quoted Dickson as having made the remarks, when Adedoja visited the governor in Abuja to thank him for his reconciliation efforts.
Dickson called on politicians to emulate Adedoja, whom he described as “a man of honour”.
He said: “I want to thank Prof. Adedoja for agreeing to withdraw his suit against our party. I also commend him for placing party interest first above personal interest. By this action, he has proved that he is in politics to serve and not for personal aggrandisement and this is worthy of emulation by all.”
