As the leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, showed no sign of abatement, the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase, has ordered the shutdown of the party’s national secretariat, Wadata Plaza and Legacy House, also belonging the PDP.
The IGP, however gave warring factions in the party two weeks to resolve their differences.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Spokesperson of the Force, Olabisi Kolawole, adding that the IGP took the decision at a meeting with stakeholders of the party in Abuja.
The statement read in part, “In a bid to finding a lasting solution to the protracted crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, convened a meeting with all stakeholders in his Abuja office on Friday and called for peace among the parties, particularly Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
“After exhaustive deliberations, in the meeting that was also attended by the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Musa Daura, each of the factions – Sen Ali Modu Sherif’s and Sen Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi’s-led factions agreed to nominate four representatives each, for peace talks to arrive at a harmonized position within one week.
“The PDP Secretariat at Wadata House Plaza and Legacy House should be under lock and key pending the outcome of the resolution,” the statement said.
