Ahmed Makarfi has reportedly said he would obey the position of the law in the on-going crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP now that Alhaji Modu Sheriff has taken over the National Secretariat of the party on Monday to affirm his authority as Chairman.
Sheriff along with some party members had stormed the Party secretariat, claiming he was in possession of a court order recognising him to continue in office as the National Chairman.
Makarfi, who was appointed caretaker chairman of the party at the Port Harcourt convention told newsmen on Tuesday that, if he was fully briefed on details about crisis in the party and the status of Modu Sheriff, he would have had a rethink.
He said, “if I knew that there was a court order empowering Sheriff as the Chairman, I would not have taken the position because my interest is to see that PDP did not disintegrate. If the court said Sheriff is our leader, we will all follow him.”
Meanwhile, the PDP chairman Board of Trustees, Walid Jubril has paid a midnight visit to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff’s Maitama resident.
The BoT Chairman, told the embattled Chairman that the BoT has always stood by him and would continue to give him the needed support in other to bring PDP back on track to wrestling power from the opposition come 2019.
The BoT Chairman, who was accompanied by some BoT members were said to have pledge to call other party members of ranks to sort out their differences once and for all if only for the party to move forward.
