IN A BID to resolve the crisis
rocking the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, the leaders of the
party would today (Monday)
meet with concerned and
aggrieved members to find a
lasting solution.
Those to meet at the Ondo
Governor’s Lodge on Monday
in Abuja are, the PDP Governors’
Forum, National Assembly
Caucus, Board of Trustees (BoT)
of the party, Makarfi group and
Sheriff group.
Disclosing this yesterday,
the Director General of PDP
Governors’ Forum, Osaro
Onaiwu said that the agenda of
the meeting is to resolve the crisis
rocking the party. He added that decision would
also be taken on the forthcoming
Edo state gubernatorial election.
Onaiwu said: “The leaders of
the party, the Governors’ Forum,
National Assembly Caucus, BoT,
Makarfi group and Sheriff group
will meet tomorrow (today) to
address the issue in the party.
We want to resolve the crisis in
party once and for all. We want
to find lasting solution to the
party. All parties involved are
invited for this meeting. The
forthcoming Edo election will
also be addressed.”
Recalled that after the party
national convention held in Port
Harcourt on May 21, where
Sheriff was sacked as the National
Chairman, the party constituted
a caretaker committee headed by
former Kaduna state governor,
Ahmed Makarfi to head the
party for a period of three
months, but dissatisfied with this
development, Sheriff has gone to
challenge the action of the party,
a situation that led to the party
national secretariat to be sealed
off by armed police men for days
before it was reopened for staff
and journalists not long ago.
