PDP Opts For Peace As Factional Leaders, Bonu-Sheriff, Makarfi, Governors Meet In AbujaFeatured, Latest News, News Thursday, July 14th, 2016
ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – An indication that the raging Leadership crisis which has polarized the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) might soon become a history, on Thursday emerged as the estranged and factional leaders of the party – Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff and Ahmed Markarfi met at a closed door meeting.
The meeting which held at the Wadata Abuja Headquarters of PDP, which has been under lock for almost two months, owing to the stalemate among the party Leaders, has in attendance all State Governors elected on the banner of the Nigerian current first opposition.
It would be recalled the Leadership tussle recently depeened when Modu-Sheriff was hoodwinked out of the PDP Port Harcourt Convention, which curiously appointed Makarfi as the non-elective National Head.
Ever since, the former Borno State Governor has been in and out of court fighting for retention of his position. The court injunctions and display of supremacy by the various factions resulted to the party’s National office closure by the security operatives.
However, it was not clear to what extent is the involvement of former Deputy Senate President Ibrahim Mantu, Professor Tunde Adeniran, Jerry Gana and others faction in the Thursday PDP peace parley.
