PDP Crisis: Modu Sheriff gives new conditions for peace

Factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Modu Sheriff, finally bowed to pressure over the weekend as he said he was open to reconciliation with the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the party.

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

“I am open to reconciliation. But whatever we are going to do must be grounded in the constitution of the party,” he disclosed in an interview.

Sheriff insisted on the following for peace to reign…

– due processes laid down by the party’s constitution for leadership succession

– 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

– insisted that only the National Executive Committee could constitute the committees and that if the provisions of the constitution were followed he remained the only national chairman that could summon the meeting of the NEC for this purpose.

– Ready 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.

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.
