National chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Ahmed Markarfi has responded to statements made by Ali Modu sheriff who claimed he was not invited to the caucus meeting of the opposition party.
Markarfi disclosed that no body was issued an official invitation to the caucus meeting adding that even the former president of the country, Goodluck Jonathan did not receive any invitation. He explained that the meetings were summoned through advertorials.
“We never wrote a letter to any individual; we published the invitations. President Goodluck Jonathan did not receive a phone call or a letter.
No governor received a phone call or a letter, no National Assembly member received a phone call or letter, the procedure of PDP is to publish in the media, both electronic and print, and it was done and those who are genuine members of the party, you saw the number, they came; so why should he (Sheriff) create a new procedure for himself?
Others did not receive any letter, never demanded that and that has never been done in the history of the PDP; the announcement is always done through advertorial”.
