In a bid to resolve the crisis within the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, Senators Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff decided to settle their differences and work for a united Peoples Democratic Party in the interest of the country and Nigerians.
Following this, the duo signed a Memorandum of Understanding which was made public on Wednesday. The MoU was made available on the twitter handle of the party after it was signed.
The Signed MoU read thus:
”At a meeting held this morning between the two of us, His Excellency, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and His Excellency, Senator Ahmed Makarafi CON, a holistic review of the state of affairs of our great party, the PDP was deliberated upon.
The meeting was held in the convivial atmosphere of brotherhood and understanding in the best interest of our great Country Nigeria and the sustenance of our multi-party democracy.
In reviewing the crisis that has engulfed our party, the PDP since the loss of the 215 general election, after 16 years of uninterrupted leadership at the center, it became obvious to us as principal actors that it is time to heal the wound, and bring about sanity to our democratic process, bringing relief to the teeming supporters of our great party, the PDP, and to the benefit of our country Nigeria .
Base on the above, we have both agree to: a) Consulted widely with all relevant organs of the party. b) Set up a joint committee that will carry out a holistic reconciliation of all aggrieved segments of our party across the country and disapora.
c) Pursue the vision of the founding fathers of our great party, the PDP.
Details of all the above will be made public soonest.
We therefore call on all party members to remain calm and refrain from any action and utterance that could further bring about divisions or disputes to the party.
Finally, this is without prejudice to all outstanding matters in court.”
