PDP Crisis: Why I Met with Ali Modu Sheriff - Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has contradicted reports in a section of the media that he endorsed Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) following the latter’s appellate court victory and visit to Jonathan with his supporters for consultations on Monday.
According to the former President who is seen as a strong moderating influence in the troubled party, “The issue of endorsement never came up in the course of the visit; not at the closed-door meeting with Sheriff nor during the interview with newsmen.”

Currently seen as the foremost leader of the party, Jonathan said he welcomed Sheriff and some of his supporters to his house in line with a mediation role he is playing towards unifying and strengthening the PDP.
Significantly, on the same Monday, Jonathan met with Senator Ahmed Makarfi, leader of the PDP Caretaker Committee, and the party’s Board of Trustees Chairman, Sen Walid Jubril.
Jonathan who spoke through his Senior Media Aide, Mr Ikechukwu Eze, stated that he opened his doors to Sheriff upon his request just as he had earlier done to the Makarfiled caretaker committee members, adding that he is prepared to broker more talks until the issues in the leadership of the PDP were finally resolved.
