North-west PDP leaders back Makarfi
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.
