The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff, has told the party staff to resume work or face punishment.
This was contained in a statement, signed by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Bernard Mikko.
He made it clear that the workers were supposed to be apolitical and not take sides.
The statement read: “All staff of the PDP National Secretariat that have not resumed duties should immediately go back to work.
“This notice serves as another opportunity for the staff of the to take advantage of the magnanimity of the leadership of Sheriff and resume duties in line with the press statement issued after the meeting of the National Working Committee of Wednesday March 1, 2017 and signed by the National Secretary, Prof Wale Adewale.
“Failure to heed the call by the National Secretary will attract disciplinary procedures as the staff is deemed to be conversant with their terms and conditions of employment, particularly the PDP Establishment Manual that stipulates that they remain apolitical.”
The workers had said they would stay away from work until the Supreme Court rules on the crisis.
