Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said that he is pulling out of the reconciliation move of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to Sheriff in a recent statement on Thursday signed by Mr. Cairo Ojougboh, the Deputy National Chairman, he said that his decision was to enable his National Working Committee focus on repositioning the party.
He added that the Ex-President Jonathan reconciliation move has been hijacked by the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee.
“We are opting out and focusing our efforts at making the party the darling of Nigerians again.
“We had made tremendous progress before former President Jonathan was asked by party leaders to convene a meeting where stakeholders will adopt the Governor Seriake Dickson’s Committee report on reconciliation.
“Unfortunately, former president Jonathan lost control of the meeting he convened and allowed Makarfi group to continue with their anti-party posture,” he said.
“All the organs of the party were already queuing up behind us and Jonathan came to unbundle the progress we made by his inability to control the meeting.
“We will not continue again but rather concentrate on rebuilding our party,” he said.
