Factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi on Tuesday had a meeting with some of the party’s state chairmen in Abuja to solicit support from them.
It was learnt that Makarfi in the meeting held at the faction’s secretariat located at Wuse 2 begged the state chairmen for their support.
Makarfi also appealed to the chairmen to support the faction’s candidate for the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede.
A source at the meeting said, “It was a very sober meeting. We were briefed by the chairman on the crisis in the party and all that.
“Apart from begging us to keep supporting him, he also asked us to support Jegede for the governorship election in Ondo State.
“He also briefed us on how the peace talks with the Sheriff faction failed and all that. But in all, we left the meeting in a sad mood because we don’t like what’s happening in the party.”
