PDP: Sheriff’s Faction Inaugurates Benue Exco

| Leave a comment

The leadership crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP),  at the national level has started manifesting in Benue State where a parallel state executive committee of the party was yesterday inaugurated .

Factional national chairman of the party, Sen Ali Modu Sheriff  was represented at the occasion which was held at the Makurdi residence of former military governor of Katsina State, Sen Joseph Akaagerger by the chairman of PDP Elders Forum in the state, Chief Abu King Shuluwa.

Shuluwa told party faithful  that the inauguration of the new state exco followed the conduct of congresses  by the faction beginning from the ward and local government levels, saying the congresses  it conducted were in line with the lay down procedures of electing party officials as enshrined in the party’s constitution.

The elder statesman who frowned at the emergence of the  Hon John Ngbede led-exco of the party in the state for  not following due process  regarding  zoning of offices, said  it was  a most unfortunate situation whereby people were hand- picked and foisted on party members as their leaders without recourse  to zoning.
