PDP South-West caucus passes vote of confidence on Makarfi's leadership


The South-West caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has passed a confidence vote in the leadership of the Ahmed Makarfi led caretaker committee, branding the Ali Modu-Sheriff group as mere usurpers of the party’s structure.

Present at the meeting are Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, his deputy, Kolapo Olusola, former Governor of Ogun state, Gbenga Daniels, Iyiola Omisore, former PDP Deputy Chairman, Bode George, former PDP National Vice Chairman, Tajudeen Oladipo, PDP Spokesperson,  Dayo Adeyeye, a member of the House of Representatives from Ogun, Oladipupo Adebutu, Ebenezer Babatope, among others.

Fayose at the meeting boasted that he will concede victory to the APC in next year’s Ekiti governorship election if the opposition wins 10 out of the 177 wards in the state.

“I am ready to concede defeat if they win only one local council. No matter what they do, we are on ground and we are winning 16-0 again, because we have the people behind us”, he boasted.

In the communiqué read by the Ekiti Deputy Governor after the meeting, the caucus passed confidence vote in Makarfi leadership and also declared support for the party’s appeal against the judgement of the Appeal Court, which validated the Modu-Sheriff led Executive.

The party also reposed confidence in the leadership of Fayose as the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum.
