The Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has decsribed as “a case of political hallucination” claims by Ahmed Gulak, an aide of Sen Ali Modu Sherriff that some governors of the party were behind them.
In a statement on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the Makarfi group Gulak to wake up from this dream and face reality.
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to Ahmed Gulak, an aide of Sen Ali Modu Sherriff in which he stated that up to eight governors of the PDP are in support of his renegade group.
“We naturally wouldn’t have dignified Gulak and his cohorts with a response but silence could be misinterpreted as an admission of the lies of this pathological liars.
“We are amused by Gulak’s claims. Since the 21st of May 2016 National Convention which held in Port Harcourt, Ali Modu Sheriff and his renegade band have never missed any opportunity to blame the governors for the problems of the party. Only last week their self-appointed Deputy National Chairman, Cairo was still castigating the governors for the party’s woes at a press conference. Why attack those who are supporting you?
“If Gulak wants to be taken seriously, he should name the governors who are supporting his group. Give names and say the type of support you receive from the governors.
“On the other hand, it may be a case of political hallucination, that he actually meant the APC governors who are their sponsors and not our PDP governors. The whole world knows that these are paid agents of the APC being used to destabilise our great party.
“We make bold to state that all PDP governors are fully in support of the National Caretaker Committee which they and other stakeholders created.
“Gulak should wake up from his dream and come to the world of reality.”
