Sheriff lists new conditions for peace in PDP

19 September 2016, 16:47

Abuja - Factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Modu Sheriff has said he was open to reconciliation with the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the party, reports ThisDay.

Sheriff said that he would only accept resolutions that were in conformity with the Constitution of the party.

He said he was ready to team up with the Makarfi faction to organise another convention in Abuja provided that his position as the national chairman would not be compromised.

He, however, noted that he preferred to deal more with the Governor Dickson-led reconciliation committee, which he said had shown more integrity in the handling of the crisis.

The PDP has been immersed in crisis since the botched May 22, 2016 National Convention of the party, where the party practically broke into two distinct factions with Sheriff insisting that he remained the national chairman of the party, and refusing to recognise the Makarfi Committee, reports News 24

Another convention slated for August 17, 2016 in Port Harcourt also failed as a deluge of conflicting court orders deepened the division within the party.
