PDP zones chairman to south, as Makarfi replaces Sheriff

Nigeria @ 56: Clueless, visionless APC has brought many woes, PDP says

Confusion reigned at the botched national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Port Harcourt as the national chairman of the party was technically shoved aside, and replaced with Sen. Ahmed Makarfi.

A former governor of Niger State, Alhaji Babangida Aliyu said that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has been dissolved.

He stated that former governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi was appointed to head a seven-man committee that will oversee the affairs of the party for not more than three months, and organise a national convention.

Also picked was Senator Ben Obi, who was named the National Secretary of the party.

Aliyu also stated, that the party’s chairmanship has been zoned to the southern part of the country.

Governors elected on the party’s platform insisted on continuing with the convention despite an announcement of its cancellation by the now former National Chairman,  Ali Modu Sheriff.
