By Valentine Amanze

The Ekiti State Elders Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the peaceful conduct of Saturday's ward congresses in the state.
They also expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the exercise.
In a statement on Tuesday, signed on behalf of the caucus by Chief Idowu Odeyemi, the elders particularly commended the five-member Congress Committee headed by the Deputy Governor of Taraba State,
Mr. Haruna Manu, for a thorough job despite starting late due to flight problems.
"When the exercise started, every member of the party was expected to comply with the guidelines of the party and assist the Congress committee complete its assignment," the elders said.
The said that it was curious for any member or group of members to insist that unilateral and unsupervised congresses conducted without authorization and authority of the Congress Committee be accepted by the party.

"Indeed, what the so-called Repositioning Group led by Senator Biodun Olujimi did was a clear lawless breach of the patty's Congress guidelines.
"We therefore stand by the results of the congresses as conducted and announced by the Congress Committee set up by the National Working
Committee of the party and call on the party leadership to ignore the antics of some members which can destabilize of the party."
