The Punch reports that the Sheriff faction claimed that Makarfi’s National Caretaker Committee is allegedly presently working with top chieftains of the APC who are aggrieved by the party’s way.

It alleged that the plan is to dump the PDP after ensuring that the Makarfi faction had gained sufficient confidence of those who appeared to have lost out in the APC.

The Punch quoted a source in the Sheriff faction as saying: “They (members of the Makarfi group) have been meeting clandestinely with some disgruntled members of the APC with a view to forming a new party ahead of 2019.

“They are also talking with those who have corruption cases against them by either the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, the Police or the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

“They are looking for people of questionable character and all those who are not happy with President Muhammadu Buhari in the APC are their target.

“How do you set up an inter-party committee when the problem is with us, the PDP alone?

“Why would they be scouting for people who have corruption cases against them, and those who are being tried for one criminal case or the other?

“For us, we will take the party to the people who own it and we won’t allow just one governor to lord it over the people of his state at all times.”

Meanwhile, the PDP on Tuesday, November 8 came off victorious in the Bayelsa governorship elections as the Supreme Court declared that Seriake Dickson was validly elected as governor of the state.

This was after APC candidate Timipre Sylva appealed the ruling on election results by the tribunal and appeals court. The seven-member panel of judges gave the ruling in favor of the PDP.
