SAN FRANCISCO, March 24, (THEWILL) – The Ahmed Makarfi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed reports of reaching a peace deal with the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the party.
This was disclosed by Dayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the Makarfi faction, who explained that the agreement his faction reached with the other faction on Thursday was merely a cessation of hostilities in the media.
“The attention of the national caretaker committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, CON, has been drawn to some publication in the news media misinforming the public that the parties have reached a ‘political solution’,” he said.
“This is not true and we wish to state that the agreement signed yesterday before the Governor Dickson’s reconciliation committee was only to stop further media attacks on officers, elders and other stakeholders of the PDP across the internal political divide.
“For the record, the agreement was not a political solution but rather an understanding reached urging representatives of ‘the key actors’ from both groups not to dissipate energy amongst themselves but to focus on how to unite as a formidable force capable of re-gaining power from the failed All Progressive Congress (APC)-led government in the 2019.
“The agreement also implores both parties to desist from making public derogatory remarks against each other that could cause inflammatory reactions capable of dragging the party to the mud.”
