Ali-Modu Sheriff and members of his faction got a reprieve on Thursday as Senator Ahmed Makarfi announced that Sheriff and his allies are welcome back to the party.
Beji said the leadership of the party, which met at the national secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, after the Supreme Court ruling, also took a decision on the zoning of the presidency of the country in 2019 to the Northern part of the country, while the vice-presidency would go to the south. In a statement through the spokesperson of the caretaker committee, Dayo Adeyeye, Makarfi stated that the party would overlook the "sins" of those involved in the party's crisis but will not forgive any one caught hatching a new plot.
"For the avoidance of doubt, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff does not have or own a Twitter account and could not have tweeted any message".
The major party members who have aligned with Sheriff include his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, the party's acting National Publicity Secretary, Bernard Mikko, and former National Secretary, Prof.
Makarfi, who described the last 14 months as very worrisome for the party, however, said there was no need punishing those who made the party to experience the setback.
PDP was Nigeria's ruling party for 16 years until it was defeated at the 2O15 general election.
"No, we won't punish anyone for what had happened in the past".
"Our hands are extended to all those on the other side; we will grant general amnesty to everybody; we have declared no victor, no vanquished".
Therefore he appealed to those who had cases in court to withdraw such cases.
Adeyeye alleged that the APC had failed the people, saying Nigerians were looking for a party that would offer solutions to current challenges. We will provide the alternative platform.
He said the campaign became necessary to ensure the victory of the party in the next general elections in the state.
