The National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP), led by Sen Ahmed Makarfi, yesterday declared that there is no
political solution yet to the leadership crisis rocking the party.
Makarfi, who said the party was working hard with the Governor Seriake
Dickson-led reconciliation committee, and other organs of the party to
reach a political solution, however reiterated that the effort is
without prejudice to the Appeal before the Supreme Court of Nigeria
against the Court of Appeal Judgment of February 17, 2017.
Spokesman, PDP National Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye,
stated this yesterday while reacting to what he said was some
publication in the news media misinforming the public that the parties
have reached a political solution.
Sheriff and Makarfi camps signed a cease fire agreement on Thursday
which was brokered by Dickson’s committee.
But Adeyeye said yesterday “This is not true and we wish to state that
the agreement signed yesterday before the Governor Dickson’s
Reconciliation Committee was only to stop further media attacks on
officers, elders and other stakeholders of the PDP across the internal
“For the record, the agreement was not a POLITICAL SOLUTION but rather
an understanding reached urging representative of “the key actors”
from both groups not to dissipate energy amongst themselves but to
focus on how to unite as a formidable force capable of re-gaining
power from the failed All Progressive Congress (APC) led government in
the 2019. ELANZANEWS.M
