Factional PDP chairman declares supports for Makarfi
Amid leadership crisis rocking the national body of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), factional chairman of the party in Kwara State, Sunday Fagbemi, has declared support for the Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee of the party.
Fagbemi, who made the declaration yesterday at a press briefing in Ilorin, said only the Makarfi’s committee, has the much-needed solutions to the challenges facing the PDP.
The forum was attended by prominent members of his faction, including former Minister for National Planning Suleiman Abubakar, Senator Suleiman Ajadi, former Special Adviser on Political matters to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and former PDP Chairman in the state, Kunle Sulyman.
According to him, “since coming into office, the committee and its chairman have been solving the problems of the party in piecemeal. But for the lawsuits instituted against it, the committee should have successfully solved all problems at the national and state levels of the party.
“We hereby assure all and sundry that Kwara State PDP, led by Fagbemi, recognises the Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee and acknowledges the good work the Board of Trustees, Governors’ Forum, National Assembly caucus and other organs of the party are doing,” he said.
