PDP governors, Sheriff set to clash again over party secretariat

11 July 2016, 11:08

Abuja - Despite the reconciliatory moves being made to unite the warring factions of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), there are strong indications that governors of the party and the factional National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff, are set on another collision course, reports Punch.

The latest clash is over moves by the governors to get the party’s national secretariat in Abuja reopened.

The governors are behind the National Caretaker Committee of the party, led by Ahmed Makarfi.

The party secretariat according to News 24 had been locked by the police following a violent clash between the supporters of the two factions of the party over who would gain entrance into the building.

PDP governors are reportedly in talks with the police authorities over the reopening of the party office for Makarfi and his group to gain entrance.
