The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff, on Monday, visited former President Goodluck Jonathan at the ex-President’s Abuja home.
Sheriff, who chairs a faction of the party, arrived at Jonathan’s Maitama home at 4.25 p.m and was accompanied by some members of his National Working Committee (NWC).
Those that accompanied Sheriff included the Deputy National Chairman, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh; National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo and the National Financial Secretary, Adewole Adeyanju.
Others are former Political Adviser, Ahmed Gulak; a former Minister of State for Finance, Yerima Ngama and Senator Umar Gada, among others.
The faction visited the former president just as members of the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction held an emergency meeting in Abuja to discuss latest developments in the party with regards to the ruling of the Court of Appeal, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, which affirmed Sheriff as the authentic National Chairman of the party.
Sheriff has been on a fence-mending mission since the Appeal Court ruling. He met weekend with former military Head of State and one of the backers of the PDP, General Ibrahim Babangida.
