THE chairmen of state chapters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday, June 27, threw their weight behind the Ahmed Makarfi led Caretaker Committee. The chairmen, who paid a solidarity visit to Makarfi in Abuja, said they would continue to respect the decision of the May 21 national convention of the party that set up the Makarfi committee.
Leader of the delegation, Yahaya Mohammed said as delegates to the convention, they were bound by the outcome of the convention, adding that doing otherwise would amount to undermining the national leadership of the party.
Mohammed, who is the chairman of the Federal Capital Territory chapter, urged the factional national chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, to respect the decision of the convention in the in the overall interest of the party. He maintained that the Port Harcourt convention was a product of the party’s constitution.
Responding, Makarfi said the crisis in the party was proof that the PDP is worth struggling for and that the committee’s mandate was to bring everybody on board. According to him, dragging the crisis for too long could be injurious to the health of the party, adding that the committee’s mandate did not include dissolution of the existing state executives. – THE NATION
