Sheriff vows not to recognize Markafi

02 September 2016, 09:40

Abuja - The factional Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has vowed not to regonise the Ahmed Makarfi led National Caretaker Committee

He said there is nothing like caretaker committee for the party at the national level.

Sheriff, in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Mallam Inuwa Bwala, insisted that the committee-led by Makarfi is an illegal body and cannot organise the convention of the party.”

While faulting the BoT’s position granting recognition to the caretaker committee, Sheriff maintained that, “there is no provision for a caretaker at the national level in the PDP constitution.

“A competent court has pronounced it (the caretaker committee) as illegal, while affirming Sheriff as the chairman.

“Because of these, references should not even be made to the caretaker committee in looking for solutions to the PDP crisis.”

The party's BoT has taken sides in the crisis involving two sides within the same party.

Sheriff said as much as he respected the BoT members, “most of whom are very credible Nigerians”, they should not allow themselves to be dragged into fighting a war which would benefit individuals.
