“The IG will inform his men in the state and the Commissioner will carry out the directive”.
“There will be no resistance and that is the reason we are following due legal process to take over the Secretariat”.
“The PDP has only one chairman and that is Sheriff. Every other person will quit and we are all working together as one party”, Ogbaburon, a former federal
legislator said.
Chief Ogbaburon, who confirmed the development to journalists on phone hinted that they would take the secretariat over before the end of the week.
“We are taking it over but we have not formally moved into the secretariat, that will be effect before the week is over”, noting the process was been legally followed.
Asked if his group maintains a cordial relationship with the state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, who is a staunch frontliner in the Makarfi group, Chief Ogbaburon said: “The governor of this state is a PDP man and our governor”, adding that the word faction was eliminated immediately the Appeal Court gave its verdict.
