PDP un­likely to bounce back - Shu­luwa

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

The Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) will not bounce back to power in 2019 un­til the war­ring fac­tions em­brace peace, a chief­tain of the party in Benue State, Chief Abu King Shu­luwa, has said.

Shu­luwa said de­lib­er­ate ef­fort must be made to set­tle the cri­sis cur­rently be­dev­il­ing the party at the na­tional level, oc­ca­sioned by power tussle be­tween the Sen. Ali Modu Sher­iff and Sen. Ahmed Makarfi fac­tions, so that mem­bers can team up in unity to achieve suc­cess in the fu­ture.

He said: “There is no way PDP will bounce back to power if they (Sher­iff and Makarfi) did not come back to­gether and con­duct con­gresses to move for­ward; they can’t get power.”

Shu­luwa also noted that there was dis­af­fec­tion as a re­sult of the con­gresses ear­lier con­ducted in all the states across the coun­try, hence the need to treat the mat­ter with ur­gency in­stead of throw­ing tantrums.

The PDP chief­tain urged stake­hold­ers of the party to shelve their dif­fer­ences in the in­ter­est of the larger house.
