Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has provided evidences which according to the faction prove that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is behind the crisis in the PDP.
The statement was issued by the spokesperson of the faction, Dayo Adeyeye, on Monday in Abuja.
Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was few weeks ago declared the authentic Chairman of the PDP by the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt. A judgment which the Makarfi-led faction has already appealed at the Supreme Court.
Adeyeye who spoke at the Abuja press conference said that;
“We have stated several times that the APC has its hand deep in the PDP crisis. There is no doubt that Sheriff’s activities against the PDP are being aided and abated by the APC,” he said.
“For the record, just last week, the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, gave unsolicited advice that we should support Senator Sheriff. That is one instance of their meddlesomeness in the PDP affairs.
“No doubt that Okorocha and Co. are happy that their man won at the Appeal Court but very much afraid that he could lose at the Supreme Court.
“Also, we have it on good authority that the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has deployed his former Abuja Liaison Officer who was a former Intermediate Officer of the party, Mr. John Enebeli, among others to lure some members of staff in support of Senator Sheriff by promising them huge sums of money to offset their outstanding allowances,” Mr. Adeyeye said.
