The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has extended the tenure of caretaker committees in wards, local governments, and state chapters of the party in Anambra State.
The party disclosed this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Monday, December 7.
Ologbondiyan said that the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) in that regard, was in view of the urgent need to ensure proper structure in all organs of the party at all levels across the state.
“In line with the provisions of the PDP constitution 2017 (as amended), the tenure of the caretaker committees has been extended for a period not exceeding 30 days to give stakeholders enough time for broader consultations on the Anambra state chapter of the party.
“The PDP charges all leaders, critical stakeholders and members in Anambra to remain united and continue to work together in the interest of the party in the state.”
Meanwhile, Mr. Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, on Monday, December 6, said that education; especially life-long learning, remained essential for economic transformation in any nation.
Keyamo stated this in his welcome address; at the Opening Programme of the 2021 Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Harmattan School; at the Michael Imoudu, National Institute for Labour Studies in Ilorin.
According to him, education remains most important for any organisation that hopes to transform itself; and the environment in which it operates.
“This for me is a delightful event. But first, I want to seize this opportunity to extol the leadership of the NLC; for sustaining this educational programme; despite the challenges faced by the labour movement over the years.
“Particularly with the exponential impacts of the 4th wave of industrialisation and globalisation; underpinned by the information communication technology (ICT) revolution,” he said.
