National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has reacted to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff’s claims, that he was not invited to the party’s caucus meeting.
Makarfi said nobody received an official invitation, even the former president of the country, Goodluck Jonathan.
The PDP chairman explained that the announcement for the meetings were always done through advertorial.
“We never wrote a letter to any individual; we published the invitations. President Goodluck Jonathan did not receive a phone call or a letter.
“No governor received a phone call or a letter, no National Assembly member received a phone call or letter, the procedure of PDP is to publish in the media, both electronic and print, and it was done and those who are genuine members of the party, you saw the number, they came; so why should he (Sheriff) create a new procedure for himself?
“Others did not receive any letter, never demanded for that and that has never been done in the history of the PDP; the announcement is always done through advertorial,” Makarfi told Daily Trust.
