Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may move out of the party to form a new one as they await the outcome of the Supreme Court concerning the chairmanship position.
The Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt had declared Ali Modu Sheriff as chairman of the PDP although this did not go down well with members of the party supporting Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
The Punch reports that Mr. Ladi Adebutu Kessington who is a member of the House of Representatives representing Ikenne/Shagamu/Remo North of Ogun State gave this hint while commenting on the meeting of the Southwest caucus of the PDP held in Ado Ekiti on Monday, March 6.
Adebutu said the outcome of the Supreme Court will determine the place of members of the party.
He said: “The appeal is still pending at the Supreme Court and we are waiting for the outcome. We believe that Ahmed Makarfi have the rights to convene any meeting despite the Appeal Court's ruling which validated Sheriff's faction.
“Because in the judgement, there was nowhere where it was stated that any of us here was pronounced as PDP non-member. We are still bonafide members.
“But let me tell you, people of like minds within the party will surely come together to decide their political fates if Sheriff wins the appeal.”
Fayose had also reiterated at the meeting that he could not be in the same party with some people reinforcing speculation that he would leave the party to form another one.
