Speaking in Abuja yesterday on the latest development in the crisis rocking the party and the forthcoming National Convention fixed for August 17th by the National Caretaker Committee after the enlarged meeting of the stakeholders of the party in Abuja, Senator Sheriff said emphatically that the cases were still in court.
Sheriff who spoke through his Deputy National Chairman, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, said, “I wish to inform our teeming supporters and PDP faithful nationwide that I have not reached agreement with anybody, neither have I permitted anybody to conclude on any process on my behalf.
“We will continue with our cases in court, we respect the rule of law. Sheriff will address a press conference on Monday on the state of our party, PDP. Our goal remains to return the party to the people and stamp out impunity,” he declared.
Sunday Tribune recall that the Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee during the expanded meeting with party stakeholders in Abuja had zoned its national chairmanship to the South and declared it had not foreclosed full reconciliation efforts with all aggrieved party members, especially Sheriff’s group .
The caretaker Committee declared that the presence of Senator Buruji Kashamu, a strong supporter of Sheriff’s was an evidence that its reconciliation effort was making progress.
