The Peoples Democratic Party leadership crisis was a ”hard battle” that almost erased the party from Nigeria’s political space, Ahmed Makarfi, Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee said on Thursday.
The PDP leader said this when he received a delegation of the party’s former Ministers Forum led by its chairman Taminu Turaki.
He, however, said that the outcome of the battle as decided by the Supreme Court was sweet and good, not only for PDP members, but also for Nigerians generally.
It is a victory for all political parties because the issue of convention was involved and the Supreme Court upheld the power of the convention.
We will leave the room open. Sheriff accepted the judgment going by what I read in the media.
He urged party members who had defected to the All Progressives Congress and the newly found political parties to return to the PDP fold.
