Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

Lead­ers of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in the seven states in the North-west have de­clared their sup­port for the Se­na­tor Makarfi-led na­tional care­taker com­mit­tee, say­ing he holds the key to repo­si­tion­ing the party.

Speak­ing on be­half of party chief­tains from the zone, Am­bas­sador Ibrahim Musa Kaza­ure said: “The pur­pose of this visit is to de­clare the to­tal sup­port of the en­tire PDP North­west zone to your com­mit­tee. We are be­hind you, and hereby iden­tify with your lead­er­ship as the only op­tion to save the PDP.

“We hope and pray for Al­lah’s guid­ance and sup­port for you in the dis­charge of this im­por­tant as­sign­ment of repo­si­tion­ing the PDP,” he said.

Re­spond­ing, Makarfi as­sured them that his com­mit­tee would dis­charge its duty to the sat­is­fac­tion of mem­bers, adding that on the le­gal front, the PDP’s con­ven­tion in Port Har­court, held on May 21, which pro­duced the care­taker com­mit­tee, was up­held by the courts.
