A statement issued by Bernard Mikko, acting National Publicity Secretary of Sheriff-led faction, warned that a court order had declared the committee illegal.
He recalled that a Federal High Court presided over by Justice Okon Abang in Abuja had declared the Makarfi caretaker `contraption’ as illegal.
“It will therefore be contemptuous of the court order for Prince Dayo Adeyeye or any member of the illegal Makarfi caretaker contraption to speak for the PDP when a valid court order to the contrary is still subsisting,” Mikko said.
Mikko, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said the attention of the faction’s National Working Committee (NWC) had been drawn to various comments on the state of affairs in the PDP.
He said that various comments were credited to “one Prince Dayo Adeyeye’’ who claimed to be speaking as the National Publicity Secretary (National Caretaker Committee), particularly as the reconciliation process appears to have relapsed.
He explained that the reconciliation relapsed due to Makarfi’s insistence not to disband his caretaker committee when Sheriff is inclined to step down at the next unity convention of the party
The convention is expected to usher in new executive members of the party.
