Jonathan under stress to relinquish PDP peace process

Goodluck Jonathan has come under pressure to abandon the peace process he initiated in the troubled Peoples Democratic Party.

The former President was also no longer interested in how to bring the two factions in the party together.

The National Chairman of the party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has distanced himself from the peace process.

His deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh,also insist that the party under Sheriff would no longer take part in the peace process, which ended in confusion about two weeks ago.

Mr. Dayo Adeyeye spokesperson for the caretaker committee,Thursday in Abuja that the former President had yet to demand the six-man team the faction ought to contribute to the peace committee.

He stated that the reluctance of Jonathan to continue with the process could be as a result of the pulling out of the process by the Sheriff group.

Adeyeye added, “We have not been asked to give the names of those that will represent us (caretaker committee) at the panel.

“Don’t forget that the Sheriff group said it would not be part of the process anymore. That could be the reason. If they say they are not taking party, who are you then going to reconcile?

“I don’t know and I can’t say what is delaying it, but since the other party said it won’t take part, it is obvious that that could be the determining factor.”

Ojougboh said the party under the leadership of Sheriff would forge ahead without those he described as vultures.

While walking out of the Jonathan’s peace meeting, Sheriff had said, “The party, as of today, has one national chairman, which is Ali Modu Sheriff. There is no PDP meeting that will take place under any arrangement that I will not make an opening remark as a national chairman.

“I think that Governor (Seriake) Dickson (of Bayelsa State) made a proposal, and we have accepted it. Other people have a programme to bring agenda which is not part of the proposal.

ex-President close aid spoke on condition of anonymity, argued that it was in the interest of Jonathan to allow the matter to be resolved by the Supreme Court.

The source stated, “It is in the interest of the former President to allow the Supreme Court to settle the leadership crisis in the party once and for all.

“We have told him this. He doesn’t need to allow himself to be disgraced the way Sheriff and his people treated him at the meeting we had the other day.

“So, instead of allowing himself to be messed up, he should wash his hands off the crisis and watch as events unfold.”
