PDP Convention: Sherrif Missing As Party Extends Makarfi’s Tenure

The sacked chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff, was nowhere to be found On Saturday at the party’s national convention, as the opposition party approved the extension of the tenure of the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee by four months.

The extension of the tenure of the Caretaker Committee was approved this afternoon by delegates from the country’s 36 states and the FCT, as party members voted overwhelmingly for it at the convention, which was held at the Eagles Square in Abuja – with over 5000 members in attendance.

The leadership of the party said the extension became necessary so as to give the committee ample time to conduct an elective national convention.

The convention also approved a recommendation for the dissolution of the state executive committee in Anambra,as well as those of all the local governments and wards in the state.

Similarly, the convention approved the dissolution of the state executive committees in Adamawa, Borno, Kebbi, Kwara, Osun, Lagos and Ogun states.

Caretaker committees proposed by the NCC for all the states were also approved.

This is the first national gathering of the party members since the Supreme Court judgement that reaffirmed Senator Ahmed Makarfi as the Caretaker Committee Chairman after ousting the former chairman, Ali Sheriff.
