The Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the Ahmed Makarfi led faction of anti-party activities.

Sheriff’s faction alleged that Makarfi and his team are courting aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to form a new party.

This is coming after the PDP led by Makarfi inaugurated a reconciliation committee that will work towards uniting the party.

A source in Sheriff’s camp, told Punch that “They (members of the Makarfi group) have been meeting clandestinely with some disgruntled members of the APC with a view to forming a new party ahead of 2019.

“They are also talking with those who have corruption cases against them by either the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, the Police or the Code of Conduct Tribunal.”

Adding that  “They are looking for people of questionable character and all those who are not happy with President Muhammadu Buhari in the APC are their target.

“How do you set up an inter-party committee when the problem is with us, the PDP alone?

“Why would they be scouting for people who have corruption cases against them, and those who are being tried for one criminal case or the other?

“For us, we will take the party to the people who own it and we won’t allow just one governor to lord it over the people of his state at all times.”

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that a lot of Nigerians are suffering under the Buhari-led administration.
