Olusola Fabiyi, Abuja
In his determination to find a solution to the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, former President, Goodluck Jonathan, said in Abuja on Friday, that he had met with the leaders of the two warring factions of the party.
The leaders are the party’s National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, and the Chairman of the sacked National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
He also said that he had met with the Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin, and the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
Though details of the meetings were not made public, the former President, however, commended members of the party for their unreserved support towards resolving the differences in the party.
Jonathan said this in a statement issued on his behalf by his Media Adviser, Mr. Ikechukwu Eze.
The PDP had been engulfed in fresh crisis since the Court of Appeal, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, declared Sheriff as its authentic national chairman.
It outlawed decisions taken at the party’s national convention where Makarfi and other members of the caretaker committee were appointed.
