The Senator Ali Modu Sheriff's National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has postponed the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting earlier slated for May 3, 2017.

‎The NWC also announced that it has ‎pulled out of the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s reconciliation move.

In a statement yesterday in Abuja by the PDP Deputy National Chairman, Dr Cairo Ojougboh, Sheriff said Jonathan lost control of the meeting he convened and allowed the “dissident Makarfi-led group to continue with their anti-party activities.”

The statement said, “We are opting out and focusing our efforts at making the party the darling of Nigerians again. We had made tremendous progress before former President Goodluck Jonathan was asked by party leaders to convene a meeting where stakeholders will adopt the Governor Dickson Committee report on reconciliation.

“All the organs of the party were already queuing up behind us and Jonathan came to unbundle the progress we made by his inability to control the meeting.

“We will not continue again but rather concentrate on rebuilding our party. We have also postponed the national executive committee meeting which we earlier fixed for May 3.‎ A new date will be announced later,” he said.
