Team up with Makarfi to move PDP forward, Dickson tells Modu-Sheriff

Team up with Makarfi to move PDP forward, Dickson tells Modu-Sheriff

Bayelsa Governor, Seriake Dickson has called on the former National Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu-Sheriff and his supporters to team up with the Ahmed Makarfi –led National Caretaker Committee of the party to move the PDP forward.

Dickson who is also the Chairman of the National Reconciliation Committee of the PDP, said the recent judgement by the Supreme Court, produced no victor, no vanquished and called on all within the party to see it as such.

The Bayelsa Governor also advised the Makarfi -led National Caretaker Committee and all leaders of the party to deliberately and ‘‘consistently pursue true and genuine reconciliation of all contending parties in the party with the view to organising an all-inclusive National Unity Convention to select the leadership of PDP.

According to a statement issued in Yenagoa by his Special Adviser on Media Relations, Francis Agbo, the Governor believes true reconciliation and a National Unity Convention would build confidence in the party as well as ‘‘endear Nigerians to PDP and persuade those who had defected from our great party to return to PDP ahead of 2019.’’

While stressing that the judiciary only adjudicates on matters but never reconciles contending parties, Dickson said now that the Supreme Court has delivered the much expected judgement, the PDP must reconcile and truly put its house in order to effectively play its role as the leading opposition party in Nigeria.
