PDP may extend Makarfi's tenure, discuss others at Saturday's Natl Convention

Governor of Ekiti and PDP Governors' Forum, Ayodele Fayose said the forum was committed to the success of the party.

Meanwhile, Kashamu, who was a known figure on the side of Ali Modu-Sheriff while the party crisis lasted was fingered once again as the one who sponsored people to take the party to court during the week with a view to stopping the non-elective convention holding at the Eagle square now.

"I have observed the Constitution of PDP and the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and wish to state as follows: Senator Ahmed Markarfi's Caretaker Committee should be given at most another three months to allow new executives and other organs of the party to be elected to enable the Party move on".

Clark in a statement issued thursday concerning Saturday's non-elective national convention of the PDP, also advised the party to guard against the practice of relying on governors, government functionaries and candidates provides logistics and convey delegates to convention venues.

He recalled that in the party at that time, internal democracy took a backstage, aggrieved party members were disregarded and impunity became the order of the day at various leadership levels in the party.

"It is time for self examination for all of us and to return to what is right bearing in mind our mistakes in the past".

"From the way things are going presently in this country, i believe Nigerians will realise that PDP is the only alternative that can bring Nigeria out of her present economic challenges", he added.

Mark, therefore, charged the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa-led Special Convention Committee not to leave any stone unturned to guarantee a hitch-free exercise.

Mark, who had earlier resisted the wave of defection t the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) stated that he would be "the last man standing in the PDP". "We cannot afford to make another mistake that could affect the fortunes of the party in the days ahead", he said.

He said: "We have come this far through a tortuous journey".
