The National Working Committee (NWC) of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has confirmed the resignation of some of its officials.
Seven members of the NWC had earlier resigned from their offices on Tuesday, as a result of the leadership crisis rocking the party.
At a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday evening, Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the party, said the PDP has received notification from some elected members of the National Executive Committee of the party.
Ologbondiyan asked stakeholders and members of party to remain calm, assuring that the issue will be resolved soon.
“The National Working Committee of our great party at it meeting today received the notice of the resignation from deputies who are elected members of the National Executive Committee.
“The meeting of the National Working Committee and the deputies immediately took place to dialogue on the issues that were raised. The party will look into the grievances raised by members of NEC as well as members of the National Working Committee.
“The internal conflict resolution mechanism of our party has also been immediately activated to put these issues behind us. We call on all the leaders, stakeholder and members of our great party to remain calm as we collectively resolve these issues,” he said.
