The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party National Reconciliation Committee, Governor Seriake Dickson, has accused Senator Ahmed Makarfi of stalling the party’s peace process.
He also accused Makarfi who was the chairman of the ousted Caretaker Committee of the party of blackmail.
Dickson said this in an interview with Journalists in Abuja, on Sunday.
According to him, he and several other party leaders at different times made proposals aimed at ending the war of attrition within the party but that the refusal of Makarfi and some of his supporters to accept present realities was stalling the process.
In a separate interview, Makarfi said, the issue was not about his person but about the overall interest of the PDP and Nigeria’s opposition.
Dickson said Makarfi was one of several party leaders who earlier pleaded with him to support the emergence of Sheriff as the Chairman of the PDP when he opposed the move.
He said, “I opposed Modu-Sheriff’s entry as Chairman, I thought there were other roles he could play. But some of my colleagues and other leaders thought otherwise including most of these people who are calling names.”
