Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi has said no one was personally invited to the party’s caucus.
Makarfi said this while responding to claims by Ali Modu Sheriff that he was not invited to the meeting.
According to Vanguard, a source quoted Makarfi as saying even former President Goodluck Jonathan was not invited.
“We never wrote a letter to any individual; we published the invitations. President Goodluck Jonathan did not receive a phone call or a letter. No governor received a phone call or a letter, no National Assembly member received a phone call or letter,” the source quoted Makarfi, adding that “the procedure of PDP is to publish in the media, both electronic and print, and it was done and those who are genuine members of the party-you saw the number, they came; so why should he (Sheriff) create a new procedure for himself?
“Others did not receive any letter, never demanded that and that has never been done in the history of the PDP; the announcement is always done through advertorial,” he stated.
Sheriff had claimed that he didn’t attend the meeting because he was not attended.
