Abuja - The Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Ahmed Gulak, says the crisis rocking the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) will soon come to an end.
Gulak made this known to State House correspondents when he spoke on the outcome of the late night reconciliation meeting convened by President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting, which ended in early hour of Wednesday, had in attendance the Baraje-led faction of the PDP.
In attendance were governors of Jigawa, Sule Lamido; Sokoto, Aliyu Wamakko; Niger, Babangida Aliyu; Adamawa, Murtala Nyako; Cross River, Liyel Imoke; and Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe.
Gulak told journalists that the outcome of the meeting was a success as both parties were made to understand the provisions of the party’s constitution.
"We are talking in accordance with the law of the land and of the party. So we are on peace course, both parties are being made to understand what are involved.
"The party’s constitution, the Nigerian Constitution and other issues that are concerned; about the last night meeting, everybody was happy. Further meetings are expected,’’ he said.
He assured that the crisis would soon be a thing of the past as the demands of the aggrieved faction which were not in accordance with the constitution were being discussed.
"We have the internal mechanisms to sort out ourselves. I am assuring you that this so-called crisis would be a thing of the past.
"We are on peace course and we are discussing some of the demands that you media men are speculating are unconstitutional.
"These demands would not be in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and certain demands would not be in accordance with the party’s constitution,’’ he said.
Gulak said the process of reconciliation would continue.
