PDP National Caucus endorses move to reconcile members

06 October 2016, 12:09

Abuja - The extended national caucus of  PDP has endorsed the peace move by the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee to reconcile with the disputed National Chairman of the party, Alhaji  Ali Modu Sheriff and his faction.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Dayo Adeyeye, disclosed this on Wednesday in Abuja while briefing newsmen after the party’s caucus meeting.

Adeyeye said that the purpose of the meeting was to brief the caucus on the move and get its endorsement.

The caucus is made up of PDP governors, National Assembly caucus, Board of Trustees and other stakeholders.

“Members of the caretaker committee are not there on their own, they were appointed by the party and they have to carry the party along in all they are doing.

“The peace move has been finally endorsed and supported by members of caucus without any dissent voice,” he said.

Adeyeye, however, said there were no factions in the party but aggrieved members.

“We don’t have factions in PDP. There are some of our members who are aggrieved.

“We are making moves to ensure peace in the party,” he said.

Makarfi and Sheriff in September expressed determination to settle the party leadership crisis.

The peace committee is expected to be inaugurated on Monday to reunite the party.

Commenting on the issue of some elected PDP members who had detected to APC, Adeyeye said that PDP was taking necessary steps to declare their seats vacant.

“We are taking steps to ensure that we take back the seats from the lawmakers that defected from PDP to APC.

“There is no factionalisation in PDP, INEC recognises the caretaker committee. All the organs of the party are in one place.

“We are making serious moves to ensure that members who took our seats to APC are recovered.”(NAN)
