Spokesman of the Ahmed Makarfi led caretaker committee of the Peoples Demcratic Party, PDP, Dayo Adeyeye, has described the statement that they receive monthly subvention from state governors from the party as a lie from the pit of hell and a very cheap and unintelligent form of blackmail.
“It is a known fact by all critical stakeholders of the party and even the staff that the National Caretaker Committee has from inception, been hamstrung by inadequate finance, so much so that simple secretariat duties have been a struggle.
“Members of the National Caretaker Committee do not enjoy any remuneration. It is a selfless service.
“Be that as it may, we want to say that the party belongs to all its members — governors, former governors, National Assembly members, former National Assembly members, Presidents, former President etc.
“Our only regret is that these contributions have not been forthcoming as expected, given the heavy weight of responsibilities placed before us and especially the burden of having to deal with distractions caused by Modu-Sheriff and his cohorts.
“Nevertheless, no matter how little, it is better to be funded by our party members than by the All Progressives Congress, APC, as is the case Modu-Sheriff and his cohorts.
“Cairo Ojougboh, should tell us which APC governor, minister or official bought Jeeps for them?
“Governor Fayose has also made a public allegation that Modu-Sheriff has received the sum of $1 million from the APC to organise a new convention and he is yet to publicly refute the allegation,” he said.
