The tussle within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP may come to an end soon as the chairman of the caretaker committee party Ahmed Makarfi has regarded the factional chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff as his friend.
Makarfi in a new diplomatic approach to the tussle maintained that he will continue to plead with Sheriff for a dialogue as unity remains an important tool for the party ahead of the Edo governorship election.
Makarfi while speaking in Abuja yesterday said: “Once again, I call upon the former chairman of PDP, my colleague and friend Sheriff and those associating with him to follow the part of dialogue.
“I will continue to plead that what you cannot achieve through peace or dialogue, you cannot achieve it through the opposite.
“They should not to do anything further that will cost PDP harm in Edo state.
“This means validly and legally, no any primary can be conducted apart from the one which we conducted and monitored by INEC,” Makarfi noted.
He continued: “If the intention is not to cause the PDP to fail the election, any talk towards conducting other primaries in Edo by anybody either within or outside the state is supposed to have ceased by this time.”
