The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senate Caucus has announced its decision not to honour an invitation extended to it by Senator Modu Sheriff. The Chairman of the caucus, Senator Godswill Akpabio made this known while briefing newsmen shortly after a close-door meeting of the caucus, on Wednesday in Abuja. Akpabio, who is also the Senate Minority Leader, said Sheriff had extended a letter dated March 6 to the caucus for a meeting. He explained that while the caucus would continue to push for an out of court settlement regarding the current leadership tussle, the meeting of all major stakeholders would be a better option. Akpabio further said that while the judicial processes were on, the caucus would pursue an out of court settlement.
According to him, for the party to succeed with any alternative to court processes, it was pertinent to meet all major stakeholders, including governors and National Caretaker Committee. He further stated that leadership tussle did not in any way diminish the strength of the party across the country. Akpabio assured PDP supporters across the nation that the party was still vibrant, adding that it was only PDP that would assist the All Progressives Congress (APC) in deepening democracy.
