Cooperate with Makarfi, Kwara PDP Chairman urges Sheriff
The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara state, Prince Sunday Fagbemi, has urged Senator Ali Modu Sherif to join hands with the Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee to move the party forward.
He said Sherif’s cooperation with Makarfi’s committee is necessary since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has recognised the latter as the authentic national leadership of the party.
Fagbemi bared his mind on the leadership crisis rocking the PDP at the national level,during an interview with LEADERSHIP Sunday in Ilorin .
It would be recalled that the Fagbemi- led executive of Kwara PDP had at a recent news conference in Ilorin pledged its allegiance to Makarfi’s caretaker committee.
He said the state chapter of the PDP will participate actively in the August 17 national convention of the party in PortHarcourt, Rivers state.
He said the list of delegates that will participate in the convention has been forwarded to PDP’s national secretariat in Abuja.
According to Fagbemi,the leadership crisis rocking the party in the state has been resolved in the best interest of the party.
He said, he recently attended a stakeholders meeting of the party in Abuja with virtually all leaders of the party in the state in attendance.
He hinted of plan by his executive to give the splinter group in the state a soft landing.
“We are all brothers and members of the same family in Kwara PDP; this is why we are treating this crisis with maturity,” he stated.
