Former ministers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are meeting in Abuja to decide Senator Ali Modu Sheriff on the party’s leadership.
The former Minister of Special Duties and Chairman of the PDP’s Ministers Forum, Kabiru Turaki, disclosed that the meeting would take some critical decisions that would save the party from its leadership crisis.
He also believed that the forum would also be able to save the party from further collapse.
The PDP former ministers from 1999 till 2015, when the party lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) are meeting to decide whether or not to allow Senator Sheriff continue as the party’s National Chairman.
The meeting is sequel to series of controversies that have trailed the emergence of the new PDP National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, who resumed office on Monday.
PDP’s Board of Trustees (BoT) had earlier joined the group of those rejecting the appointment of Senator Sheriff as the party’s National Chairman, saying that he was not a suitable leader for the party.
The acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s BoT, Senator Walid Jubril, maintained that the board would meet to provide a viable solution to the leadership crisis.
