PDP Bot Sends Sheriff, Makarfi Out Of meeting by Nobody: 1:53pm On May 26, 2016
The former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff and the chairman of the Caretaker committee of the Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi were excused out of a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the party which is on going in Abuja.

Senator Sheriff walked into the Transcorp Hilton venue of the meeting at about 11:10 am and was followed five minutes later by Senator Makarfi. The duo sat at the high table alongside the chairman of the Board, Senator Jibril Wali and the secretary, Chief Ojo Maduekwe. Few minutes later, the chairman of the board announced that the board had a very important decision to take before the commencement of the meeting.

At this point, he asked journalists covering the opening ceremony to leave the hall and less than five minutes later, Senators Sheriff and Makarfi walked out of the meeting hall. A member of the board who does not want to be named told vanguard that the two were asked to leave the hall because it would be inappropriate for them to be in attendance at a meeting that was going to discuss their matter.

Moreso yesterday eight out of 11 members of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party dumped Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as they pledged their loyalty and support to the Ahmed Makarfi led caretaker committee of the party.

In a resolution passed at their meeting in Abuja, the members of the Committee said as products of the national convention of the party, “we accept without equivocations all decisions and resolutions of the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party held at Portharcourt on the 21st of May, 2016”. The members said the resolutions at the PDP convention in Portharcourt “Merely reechoes our undeniable as members of the National Working Committee to give up our tenures for congresses and convention to be held in May 2016”.

While pledging their support for and cooperation with the Ahmed Makarfi led caretaker committee, the former NWC members noted that the constitution of a caretaker committee falls within the powers of the national convention as enshrined in section 33(5) (e) of the party constitution.

While enjoining the party’s teeming supporters and other critical stakeholders to support the Ahmed Makarfi led caretaker committee, the members call on other party leaders to shun personal interest and work towards moving the party forward. It added that in the absence of the national chairman of the party at the convention, it was appropriate for the Deputy National Chairman, Uche Secondus to preside over the convention in accordance with sections 33 and 35 of the party’s constitution.

Those who signed the resolution were Uche Secondus, Deputy National Chairman, Solomon Onwe, Deputy National Secretary, Victor Kwon, National Legal Adviser, Dr Kema Chikwe, Woman Leader, Abdullahi Maibasira, Uouth Leader, BolajI Anani, National Financial Secretary, Buharu Bala, National Treasurer and Olisah Metuh, National Publicity Secretary. The national Secretary and National Auditor, Professor Adewale Oladipo and Fatai Adeyanj respectively were not signatory to the resolution as both of them are in court to challenge elections into their offices.

I enjoy seeing PDP die slowly as it's happening now.

The party that brought pains, sorrows and destruction through unimaginable corrupt practices.

PDP - Death to the party.

Nigerian media and their hyperbolic reportage. Where in the report were they sent out? The BOT simply asked them to excuse them so that they could decide on what to do about the leadership tussle rocking the party. But the newspaper added some subtle exaggerations to attract readers. Some news sometimes make me wonder if there is an ethical guide for media practise in Nigeria.

What are you really on about? Kwankwanso is a tactical politician who flew on Buhari's wings to power in 2011. He did that because of political expediency.
No one wins the Presidency without a good political alignment, that is one of the reasons for Buhari's victory after failing three times. Although I do not approve of his methods, but I cannot fault Tinubu's role in Buhari's emergence. Buhari would have shed tears the fourth time if not for Tinubu and members of the new-PDP that jumped ship.

What will happen as the race to the 2019 presidential election hots up is an alignment of political forces. All seems to be well in the APC but any keen observer can tell that the peace that exists in the party is a facade that will wear off soon. I see a lot of movements in and out of the party.

Presidential elections take more than clout to win. In fact, my uncle used to say that no one has ever contested to become the President of this country. One is picked by powerful forces to become the President. You can take a quick look at our political history, you will see the truth in what my uncle said.
Kwankwaso can become the President, if the right forces align

You answered your question in the last sentence of the quoted, Political expediency & the only thing that can be said to be expedient is what can get one's desire...

Let's be realistic, how do you think it would have ended if it had been Kwankwanso VS Jonathan?

No argument on this.... Which is what a particular region has refused to understand,Alignment is what it's 150% all about...

This i agree with on the point that if Kwankwanso gets the right forces to align , he can take it all the way home & also disagree with you because we will have to ask despite the amount of money spent , the AIT drama, the negative PR spin, 2015 went the way it did..

Everything you're saying is conjecture. If, if, if. What if unlike PDP, APC stays united and there is no realignment before 2019 nko?
