Men of the Nigeria Police have barricaded entrance of the International Conference Centre, Abuja, supposed venue for the Markafi-led PDP faction Stakeholders meeting.
Although, the meeting was slated for 2:00pm today, mobile policemen as early as 11am stormed the venue blocking incoming vehicles.
The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the party, in a statement on Monday, by its spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye accused the party’s embattled national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of conniving to kill the PDP.
Determined to hold the meeting, the faction announced the Ekiti State Governor’s Lodge, on T. Y. Danjuma Street, Asokoro, Abuja, as the new venue.
“Senator Ali Modu Sheriff in collaboration with the All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government has barricaded the International Conference Center, ICC, venue of the scheduled Stakeholders Meeting of the entire organs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“This is a very sad development in our democratic history where there is no longer free association and movement of citizens of this Country, he said.
“Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and his APC collaborators cannot stop the will of the people. Nigerians can now confirm that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is a mole in PDP to destroy the only strong opposition in the country,” the statement said.
