To ensure that there is no breakdown of law and order, the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase met with Sheriff and Makarfi.

Arase told the PDP leaders to carry out their protests in a law abiding manner.

Vanguard also reports that eight members of the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have dumped the embattled chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.

The former NWC members also pledged their support for the newly elected caretaker committee chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.

They also called on PDP leaders to stop promoting their personal interests, adding that the election of Makarfi is in line with the PDP constitution.

The crisis in the party deepened after the national convention which held in Port-Harcourt on Saturday, May 21, 2016, sacked Sheriff.

According to Vanguard, the former NWC members said “we accept without equivocations all decisions and resolutions of the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party held at Port Harcourt on the 21st of May, 2016.”

Governor Nyesom Wike, who spoke to newsmen after the Port-Harcourt convention, said the removal of Sheriff was in the best interest of the PDP.
