PDP crisis: Sheriff gives terms for peace

PDP crisis deepens as court orders INEC to recognise only Sheriff's candidates

The leadership crisis in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may soon come to an end, as moves have been initiated by stakeholders to resolve the issues.

The crisis has lingered with both Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi laying claim to being the party’s national chairman.

The immediate past PDP vice chairman South-South, Dr Cairo Ojougboh revealed at a press conference in Abuja, that the Sheriff group has stated its terms for peace talk with the Makarfi faction through a go between.

Dr Ojougboh who was given the position of deputy chairman by Senator Sheriff, contended that in carrying out the negotiation, the PDP must acknowledge that Sheriff remains the authentic chairman pending when there is a properly constituted convention of the party.

He failed to disclose other terms given by Sheriff’s group that will bring a lasting solution to the crisis rocking the party. He only noted that “the conditions for truce are being worked out.”

He argued that the struggle is never for Sheriff to continue as the chairman of the party but to ensure that impunity in the party is stopped and that those whose turn is it to be in power are not denied their right.
