An emergency meeting of all ministers who served under the Peoples Democratic Party from 1999 to 2015 is set to hold tomorrow.
The PDP Ministers that served under the People’s Democratic Party-led government of 16 years and who are still in the party will meet on Tuesday.
The urgency and timing of the meeting suggests that the recent selection of former Borno Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff, as national chairman of the party will top discussion.
Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, Chairman Committee on Strategy, PDP Ministers’ Forum, made this known on Monday in a statement he signed.
It reads: “The PDP Ministers’ Forum, under the able leadership of Alhaji Kabiru Tanimu Turaki SAN, the former Minister of Special Duties, will meet at 11.00am on Tuesday at Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja to deliberate on how to move our great party forward in view of recent developments.
“Contrary to some media reports, membership of the PDP Ministers Forum is NOT restricted to only Ministers that served between 2011 and 2015; the meeting that will hold on Tuesday is NOT just for the Ministers that served under President Goodluck Jonathan.
“The meeting is for ALL PDP Ministers that are still in the party and that served between 1999 to 2015. If you are in that category of people then you are more than welcome to attend the meeting and we would be delighted to see you.
“This is especially so because crucial decisions which will undoubtedly affect and shape the future of our great party will be taken at the said meeting”.
It would be recalled that Fani-Kayode had vehemently voiced his opposition against the emergence of Sheriff as PDP chairman.
