PDP Crisis: Reconciliation Committee Presents Recommendations To Sheriff

Ali Modu Sheriff, PDP, Jerry GanaThe reconciliation committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is making frantic efforts to reunite aggrieved members of the party.

The reunion is part of efforts to put things in place ahead of the proposed PDP national convention.

The Chairman of the reconciliation committee, Professor Jerry Gana, was briefing journalists after a meeting with the Senator Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction of the party on Friday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

He says the committee hopes to reconcile all warring factions before the party’s convention.

Professor Gana hinted that the committee had presented its recommendations to Senator Sheriff’s faction and expressed optimism that it would promote reconciliation if implemented.

At a separate meeting with party members from the northeast, Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, asked members to be cautious of the decisions to be taken by various leaders of the party to avoid plunging it into another round of crisis.

The PDP Youth Leader in Kaduna State, Ahmed Maiyaki and federal lawmaker, Tony Nwulu, insisted that the youths be carried along in the process.

The party has been struggling with its leadership crisis since it lost the presidential elections in 2015.

In May, some members of the party at a convention in Port Harcourt removed Senator Sheriff as its Chairman and set up a caretaker committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi.

After, his removal, Senator Sheriff continued to carry himself as the leader of the party, insisting that a court order had nullified the convention that led to his removal.

The situation brought a divide in the party, that led to the setting up of the reconciliation committee by the PDP Board of Trustee saddled with the responsibility of reconciling the factions.

Senator Sheriff is expected to study the recommendations of the committee ahead of a bigger meeting with the contending factions before the proposed convention.
