SAN FRANCISCO, September 12, (THEWILL) – National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has dismissed reports of a brewing political crisis between former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson.
Speaking while receiving the executive of the state chapter of the party in Abuja on Tuesday, Makarfi said he came to this conclusion after communicating with both Jonathan and Dickson.
He pointed out that the alleged rift was the imagination of those he described as mischievous, who he said were out to create crisis for the party in Bayelsa State.
The PDP National Caretaker Committee chairman however warned the leadership of the party in the state against dancing to the tune of mischiefmakers to avoid generating problems in the party.
“Don’t allow yourself to be fragmented by rumour. Your executive has been ratified by the convention and that is final. There is no need to pander to rumour of an impending sack of the exco.
“Immediately the rumour broke out, the former President called me to dismiss that rumour and he said there is no iota of truth in the said petition against the Bayesla executive,” Makarfi said.
