Leadership Crisis: PDP BoT Backs Makarfi’s Caretaker Committee

The Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party says various groups, including the Concerned PDP Stakeholders, have agreed to work with the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee.
Eagle Online reports that the BOT Secretary, Ojo Maduekwe, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja, while addressing newsmen on the resolutions of the Board’s expanded meeting with various organs and groups in the PDP.
Maduekwe said the groups agreed to work together and support the decisions reached at the PDP May 21 National Convention held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
“We agreed that the National Caretaker Committee led by Markafi should involve members of the Concern PDP Stakeholders group for effective integration of all points of views and indices,” Maduekwe said.
He added that in order to settle the latest leadership crisis in the PDP, the meeting set up two committees to engage all aggrieved leaders and members of the party.
He said: “The BOT at the expanded meeting decided to immediately engage all groups, party leaders and members involved in whatever disputes towards a just, lasting and amicable resolutions.
“The BOT will therefore preside over the processes of major reconciliations in our party as part of its leadership responsibility.
“A committee has also been set up to meet with Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, former National Chairman of the PDP, in the spirit of working together and resolving outstanding issues.”
Maduekwe added that the meeting equally resolved that all matters that were in courts be withdrawn for the party to apply internal mechanisms towards resolving them.
He said the advice was based on the party’s extant regulations that no matter should go to court without exhausting internal mechanisms.
The Chairman of the BOT, Senator Jubrin Walid, who also spoke, said the decisions were reached by all organs of the party represented at the meeting.
Walid listed them as the BOT, forum of former ministers, PDP leadership at the National Assembly and the party national caucuses, among others.
