FINALLY! The chairman of the caretaker committee
of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi, and factional leader, Ali Modu Sheriff,  have resolved the
crisis in the party.

They issued a statement at the end of the meeting held in Abuja on Tuesday.
The statement which was titled, ‘Rejuvenating
The PDP’,  dated 20th September 2016 signed Makarfi and
Sheriff reads:
 “This is without prejudice to all outstanding matters in court”.
“At a meeting held this morning between the two of
us His Excellency Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and His Excellency Senator
Ahmed Makarfi CON, a holistic review of the state of affairs of our
great party The PDP was deliberated upon”.
“The meeting was held in a most convivial
atmosphere of brotherhood and understanding in the best interest of our
great country Nigeria and the sustenance of our multi-party democracy”.
“In reviewing the crisis that has engulfed our
party The PDP since the loss of the 2015 general elections, after 16
years of uninterrupted leadership at the center, it became obvious to
both of us as principal actors that it is time to heal the wounds, and
bring about a united, focused and constructive opposition party that can
bring sanity to our democratic process, bringing relief to the teeming
supporters of our great party The PDP, and to the benefit of our country
“Based on the above, we have agreed to:
a) Consult widely with all relevant organs of the party
b) Set up a joint committee that will carry out a
holistic reconciliation of all aggrieved segments of our party across
the country
c) Pursue the vision of the founding fathers of our great party The PDP”
Makarfi and Sheriff urged all party members to
remain calm and refrain from actions and utterances that could further
bring about divisions or disputes in the party.

 Good news for the PDP and  hope they form a strong oposition
