Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

Em­bat­tled na­tional chair­man of the PDP, Se­na­tor Ali Modu Sher­iff, has the back­ing of nine out of the 12 gov­er­nors of his party, his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojuog­boh stated this in Abuja yes­ter­day.

“Aside gov­er­nors Nye­som Wike of Rivers, Ayo Fayose of Ek­iti and Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, all the re­main­ing PDP gov­er­nors are be­hind Sher­iff be­cause they be­lieve he has the capacity to change the for­tunes of the party,” Ojuog­boh said.

Ojuog­boh, who said the emer­gence of Sher­iff was a divine act of God, added that the em­bat­tled chair­man was reach­ing out the Se­na­tor Ahmed Makarfi to re­solve the cri­sis in the party.

“We are al­ready ne­go­ti­at­ing (with Makarfi). Ne­go­ti­a­tions and talks are al­ready in top gear and we have made re­mark­able progress in the process of re­solv­ing the is­sues. The two par­ties are talk­ing very se­ri­ously in var­i­ous fronts, and these talks have pro­gressed,” he said.
