PDP crisis over as Sheriff, Makarfi factions reconcile

By The Citizen

The Ali Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Markarfi factions of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have reconciled and are due to issue a joint press statement.

Senator Ben Obi announced this a while ago as the two PDP leaders prepare to address the press.

He was flanked by a strong member of Sheriff's faction, Dr. Cairo Ojuigho.

Announcing this, Senator Obi gleefully said PDP 'is back as one family', adding that both the Caretaker Committee chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff will issue a joint press statement.

'We have decided to issue a joint statement. As we speak today, the PDP is back as one family.

'The two leaders will address you gentlemen of the press, will constitute a joint committee with the support of all relevant organs of the party,' Obi said.
