I’ll Not Hold Parallel Congress In Anambra — Makarfi by engineerboat(m): 3:14pm On Apr 12, 2017
Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has assured party members that the mistakes made in Ondo and Edo states, which gave the All Progressives Congress (APC) upper hand, will not be repeated in Anambra State.

By implication, Makarfi has by this position conceded to the embattled national chairman of the PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, to produce the gubernatorial candidate of the party ahead of the November 2017 election in Anambra.

Sheriff had on Monday met with PDP chieftains from Anambra where they discussed the forthcoming election.

The former Kaduna governor said state chapters of the PDP where elections are to be conducted in future should ensure they produce popular candidates to avoid splitting of votes.

Makarfi, who spoke in Kaduna while reacting on the crisis in the party and efforts by former President Goodluck Jonathan and other stakeholders to broker peace, said members of the caretaker committee still enjoy the support of all stakeholders.

He said the caretaker committee will not engage in any anti-party activities that would jeopardize the prospect of the PDP in any election in the future.

“Yes, Modu Sheriff is performing certain duties; I was also approached as caretaker committee chairman by some state chapters on some matters. And because I don’t want to cause the kind of problem like what Modu Sheriff caused in Edo and Ondo, I referred them to Wadata Plaza because I am a party man.

Daily Trust reports that Sheriff is currently holding sway at the Wadata Plaza, which is the national headquarters of the party.

According to Makarfi, “I could have chosen to behave the way Modu Sheriff behaved in Edo and Ondo; but we reflected on it and say ‘no we would not do that. Let us not engage in what would deny the party any chance of electoral victory at whatever level irrespective of whether people are sympathetic to us or not. The interest of the party should be paramount,”’ he said.

Why do I think this advice came from GEJ. Well maybe cos he is the wisest of them all.

GEJ wisest of them all, yet he couldn't win his re-election, Sheriff walked out on him and his name has been propping up on all kind of scandals and graft. This wisdom must be mixed with otuoke-made ogogoro.

Even if you hold parallel congress, INEC will not accept your candidate. Whatever the case, PDP is not in contention for the next Anambra governorship election. It is strictly between Apga and APC. tongue

Your comments still portrays him as wise.Now that Buhary got power and made a great show of his cluelessness for the world to see, isn't it beautiful? Don't you just like the demystification of the New sheriff? Who would have believed Buhary was this weak and clueless grin

If Jonathan didn't hand over to the 4th timer, how would the world have known the man had nothing upstairs except Arabic Islamic religious knowledge grin

Reality fast dawning on markafi. He knows that the law backs Sheriff while he is the illegal one parading aimlessly about. Conduct another parallel election and go to jail. Inec won't even receive ur candidate.
Sheriff remains the chairman whether wike and his co fool, Fayose likes it or not.

PDD has more chances in Anambra than APC, the only way they can come up is through what happened in Edo.

Well i think... anambra is a waste of time and money to any political party wanting to contest Apga... not because of the governors performance.. but its beyond political party and voting..

It cannot even be rigged.. where are your supporters to defend your rigged votes..

I humbly think parties should just create rigorous awareness and plan for the future..
