The statement said: “Through the suspension, our party has shown the capacity and willingness to implement its own rules and enforce discipline when there is an infraction.
” We have also shown that no individual is above discipline and that the party would always apply equity and justice in the day to day running of the party.
“We hope the concerned party members will seize this opportunity to fully reconcile themselves with their ward, local government, and state party structures, key into the party activities, and continue to make their own contributions to the growth and stability of the party
“We urge them to also take steps to reconcile with groups and individuals that are important to ensuring a lasting solution to any conflict that may exist in their respective states.”
The party had suspended some of its leaders shortly after the 2019 general elections following concerns about the roles played by the said leaders in the elections.
