This led to multiple of litigations that made the National Working Committee (NWC) to set up a caretaker committee headed by Senator Tunde Ogbeha.
After assuming office yesterday in Jos, Ogbeha told newsmen that the mandate of his committee was to put in place organs of the party at various levels in Plateau.x“We are with the mindset of conducting state congress in a free and fair manner. We do not have any preferred candidate. Plateau is a PDP state, not minding the interim governance that is taking place, and we hope, with the local government election around the corner, no matter the hurdles before us, we can get all our councillors and chairmen elected. headtopics.com

This will be followed by state congress, and we are here to do that job to the best of our ability,” he said.On the infighting among stakeholders of the party in the state, Ogbeha said there was no political party without internal friction because parties are made up of people of different backgrounds, adding that his committee could resolve any infighting.
