PDP CRISIS: Sheriff Rejects BoT Proposals, Gives 2 New Conditions.

A factional national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has rejected the Board of Trustees (BoT) proposals for truce, thereby issuing two new conditional for peace.

Sheriff said the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee must be dissolved.

He also said the tenure of the BoT chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin, has expired and accused him of bringing crisis into the party. He insisted that he (Jibrin) should vacate his office for a new leadership of the board to be constituted.

The BoT led by Senator Jibrin, had Monday, in Abuja, asked Makarfi to organise a fresh national convention of the PDP in Abuja, call for an emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to be summoned by Makarfi and asked the Makarfi-led caretaker committee to constitute a fresh convention planning committee involving Senator Ali Modu Sheriff's loyalists among others

His deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and his special adviser on media, Inuwa Bwala, that the BoT proposals fell short of the decisions recently reached with the reconciliation committee headed by
Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State and a former deputy senate president, Ibrahim Mantu.

"We completely reject the vote of confidence past on the illegal caretaker committee because a committee that has failed twice to successfully organize a convention on two occasion is a failure
