A Premium Times report has shown that the Peoples Democratic Party has dissolved the Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee.
This will now pave way for the election of substantive executive for the opposition party.
The committee was put in place on May 21, 2016 after its national convention fixed for Port Harcourt was cancelled.
The committee’s tenure was initially put at three months. But following protracted leadership crisis that rocked the fold for over a year, the tenure of the Markarfi-led team was extended by four months.
That decision was taken on August 12 at the party’s non-elective National Convention held in Abuja shortly after the Supreme Court ruled that the removal of the contentious Ali Modu Sheriff-led leadership was in order.
