Goodluck Jonathan to blame for collapse of PDP’s reconciliation – Sheriff
Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s inability to control the meeting organised to resolve the leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led to the collapse of reconciliation in the party.
The National Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff said this yesterday in a statement by his deputy, Cairo Ojougboh.
He said that the reconciliation moves initiated by the former President to resolve the leadership crisis has finally collapsed, adding that as the chairman of the Party, he is pulling out of the reconciliation move.
He said: “Jonathan lost control of the meeting he convened and allowed the dissident Makarfi led group continue with their anti- party activities. 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 Goodluck Jonathan was asked by party leaders to convene a meeting where stakeholders will adopt the governor Dickson Committee report on reconciliation. Unfortunately, President Jonathan lost control of the meeting he convened and allowed Makarfi group to continue with their anti party posture.
“All the organs of the party were already queueing 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. We have also postponed the National Executive committee which we had earlier fixed for the 4th of May. A new date will be announced later.”
