In the inerest ofn the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, the factional leaders of the the PDP, Ali Modu Sherrif and Ahmad Makarfi, have to told to step down by one of the founding member of the Party, Alhaji Mohammed Rabiu Bako.
The call was made in Kaduna, by Bako, while speaking on the crisis currently playing in the party to some journalists.
“It is apparent that the two leaders are playing to the gallery with each trying to outsmart the other. This attitude is certainly and totally detrimental to the progress of our party particularly now that we are in the opposition,” he said.
“It is not in the interest of our party for our leaders to throw tantrums at each other at the slightest opportunity thereby personalizing the leadership of the party.
“As it is now, one would have expected that the Board of Trustee, our respected elders and governors would have taken full charge of the situation by demanding for the resignation of the leadership of the two warring camps so that normalcy will be restored in the affairs of our great party.
“Sadly enough, we are currently witnessing defections of monumental proportions from a party that promises to wrestle power from the APC come 2019,” he added.
Notwithstanding, Bako also said that both factional leaders, Sheriff and Makarfi, would as they know that the party is greater than personal interest, make some necessary sacrifices as needed for the growth of the party.
Record, has it that the PDP has been involved in a leadership crisis since it attempted to remove Sheriff from the position of chairman since May.
