The Senator Ali Modu Sheriff-led executive and the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee (NCC) – have expressed their support for the resolution reached by the governors to reunite the party irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling on the leadership crisis.
The Sheriff-led executive said at the weekend that it agreed with the position of the PDP Governors’ Forum that there will be no victor, no vanquished after the Supreme Court verdict.
In the same vein, a founding member of the party and former Minister of Education who is also the Chairman of the Sub-committee on Strategy set up by the NCC, Prof. Tunde Adeniran, said that at the end of the Supreme Court ruling the entire PDP family would come together and keep moving on no matter what camp they belonged to.
The side led by Makarfi had appealed to the Supreme Court against the affirmation of Sheriff as the National Chairman of the PDP by the Appeal Court and is seeking to upturn the judgment of the lower court.
Recall that the outcome of the governors’ meeting held last Thursday in Abuja, the Ekiti State governor and the chairman of the forum, Ayo Fayose, said they had resolved to “remain confident, committed and loyal to the PDP, believing that the party which is more democratic than any other one in the country, will be united towards winning elections at all levels in 2019”.
