Ali Modu Sheriff, factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the collapse of the reconciliation moves in the party was the fault of chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi.
In a statement by the acting National Publicity Secretary of his faction, Bernard Mikko, Sheriff said he should not be blamed for the inability of both factions to solve their differences.
Sheriff said Makarfi faction refused to agree on the members of the reconciliation committee which was supposed to be set up for the peace talks.
He stated, “The reconciliation process appears to have relapsed due to Makarfi’s insistence not to disband its committee when Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is inclined to stepping down at the next unity convention that will usher in new executive members of the party.
“Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff is committed to resolving the leadership imbroglio in accordance with the law.”
However, the spokesperson of the caretaker committee, Dayo Adeyeye has said Ali Modu Sheriff was not ready for a reconciliation.
He said, “From the beginning, was Sheriff serious about the need to reconcile and return peace to the party?
“The national caretaker committee is a creation of the national convention.”
