PDP crisis: Sheriff plots membership registration ahead of convention

The Sheriff faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to pull a fresh fast one on the rival Makarfi faction.

It is plotting a membership registration update as it forges ahead with the planned national convention, it was gathered yesterday.

It may also have concluded plans to dump the peace pact facilitated by the Governor Seriake Dickson reconciliation committee.

Party sources said the Sheriff-led PDP resolved to carry out a fresh registration of party members ahead of the planned national convention which is expected to usher in a new leadership for the troubled opposition party.

The decision was taken at a stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja attended by states chairmen.

The move is part of the efforts of the faction to strengthen its hold on the structures of the party from the local government level to the national level.
