Men of the Nigeria Police Force have barricaded entrance to the International Conference Centre, Abuja, venue for the PDP Stakeholders meeting, slated for 2:00pm today.
In a statement on Monday,the spokesman for the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye accused the party’s embattled national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of conniving in order to kill the PDP.
According to the statement, the new venue for the meeting now is the Ekiti State Governor’s Lodge, on T. Y. Danjuma Street, Asokoro, Abuja, while the time remains the same.
“Senator Ali Modu Sheriff in collaboration with the All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government has barricaded the International Conference Center, ICC, venue of the scheduled Stakeholders Meeting of the entire organs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“This is a very sad development in our democratic history where there is no longer free association and movement of citizens of this Country.
“Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and his APC collaborators cannot stop the will of the people. Nigerians can now confirm that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is a mole in PDP to destroy the only strong opposition in the country,” the statement said.
