Abuja - Senator Buruji Kashamu has appealed to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders to call for an emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to seek an end to the party’s leadership crisis.
Senator Kashamu, in a paper made available to newsmen on Tuesday, said the party could not use illegality to solve its problem.
Kashamu, who, until recently, was one of the strongest backers of Chairman of the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, asked stakeholders of the party to call the duo of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and current chairman of the party’s caretaker committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, to a dialogue on the way forward.

He said the contradictory pronouncements coming from the various divisions of the Federal High Court were an indication that the courts might not be able to resolve the issues in a manner that would work out for the greater good of the party.
He declared that the only solution to the impasse was the dissolution of the Ahmed Makarfi committee, noting that Sheriff had confessed that he was no longer interested in holding the position of national chairman.
Kashamu further demanded for an arrangement that would ensure that loyalists of the two contenders to the office of national chairman organise the convention scheduled to hold in Port Harcourt.
