Speaking with journalists at the weekend, Sheriff emphasized that they are still pursuing their cases in court, adding that he will address the nation on the state of the party, PDP on Monday. Speaking on his behalf, his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, said, “I have the express permission of Sheriff to inform our teeming supporters and PDP faithful nationwide that he has not reach agreement with anybody, neither has he permitted anybody to conclude on any processes on his behalf. “We are continuing with our cases in court, we respect the rule of law. Sheriff will address a press conference on Monday (today) on the state of our party, PDP. Our goal remains to return the party to the people and stamp out impunity.” It was gathered that few days ago, some leaders of the party had met with Sheriff to find a
lasting solution to the crisis bedeviling the party. Also recalled that on Thursday, the Chairman of PDP National Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, while addressing newsmen shortly after the party expanded national caucus meeting said, “we received reports of reconciliation. You can see by yourself our brothers,friends and associates, Sen. Buruji Kashamu. That is evidence of the reconciliation making progress and I can assure you that we will never foreclose full reconciliation with Sen Ali Modu Sheriff and others that may still be associated with him. “What we want is an all inclusive PDP. An equitable, fair and just system in the PDP, where the right of everyone commiserates with their own level is protected and preserved.”
