The Senate Caucus of the&#a hundred and sixty; Peoples Democratic party, on Wednesday in Abuja, turned down an invitation prolonged to it via Sen. Ali-Modu Sheriff and opted for wider consultation in resolving the management tussle within the party.
The Chairman of the caucus, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, made this identified while addressing journalists quickly after a closed-door meeting of the caucus.
Akpabio, who can be the Senate Minority chief, said Sheriff had prolonged a letter, dated March 6 to the caucus for a gathering.
He guaranteed that the caucus would continue to push for an out of courtroom agreement relating to the present leadership tussle within the party.
He, alternatively, stated the meeting of all major stakeholders could be a greater possibility.
“We held this assembly because there was a letter from Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff to the caucus and we had to meet first to know whether or not this is the fitting time.
“whether the assembly is true or no longer, what we agreed is that the management meets first and thereafter we meet with the Sheriff group, the Makarfi staff and the BOT.
“When this happens, we can then see whether all can come to a consensus and now not just the caucus running to the party administrative center to satisfy Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff. in an effort to appear to be sectionalism.
“As a caucus, we imagine strongly in peace and we imagine within the cohesion of the Peoples Democratic celebration in order that Nigeria can have a powerful democracy.
“We believe that without the PDP being robust and united, Nigeria may just slide into a one birthday party state and democracy could also be in danger,’’ he mentioned.
in line with him, for the birthday party to be triumphant with any different to court processes, it’s pertinent to meet all main stakeholders, together with governors and nationwide Caretaker Committee.
He wired the necessity for the stakeholders in PDP to spearhead a tremendous political turnaround that would convey lasting peace to the birthday celebration.
“If we succeed in doing so, it may even be an enormous approach out, instead of continuous procedures in courtroom.
“we can pursue that option with out prejudice to the continuing court approaches.’’
