Makarfi warns against allowing Sheriff to organise PDP convention
Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi has warned that it would be a recipe for more chaos should the national convention being planned by the National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff hold as scheduled.
Addressing a meeting of Northern PDP Leaders in Abuja yesterday, he pointed out that the status quo ante meant that the tenure of three members of the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) will expire in August his year while that of 18 others will end June or July 2017.
He therefore warned that if the convention goes ahead, a few aggrieved persons might go back to court over the tenures and return the party to more crises.
Makarfi maintained that the only way to solve the present leadership crisis is to embrace the political solution advocated by former President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP governors.
which must see the leadership of both factions step aside and a legal document framed to prevent more court cases over the matter.The former Kaduna state governor expressed sadness over the way Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson handled his reconciliation committee assignment, saying that that his recommendations will not augur well for the unity of the party.
