PDP leaders angry over Jonathan’s silence on party crisis

03 August 2016, 10:57

Abuja - Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are angry with former President Goodluck Jonathan over his continued silence on the crisis rocking the party since after the 2015 general elections, reports New Telegraph.

The leaders had expected Jonathan to intervene to resolve the crisis which currently has divided the party into factions.

Many within the party believe that the failure of Jonathan to intervene in the crisis was responsible for the lingering feud, especially between factional Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff and Chairman of the party’s caretaker committee, Ahmed Markarfi

The leaders believe that if Jonathan had intervene, the situation would have been different.

Some of the leaders have also blamed the former President for the crisis in the party today. 

They noted that but for Jonathan’s insistence to run in 2015 presidential election, against advice from party leaders and the then PDP governors , led by now Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, the party would not have lost the election and arrived on a path to perdition so soon.
