The warring factions of the PDP have decided to end the crisis plaguing the party, Punch reports.

Senators Ali Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi, met on Tuesday in Abuja and vowed to end the crisis.

At the end of the meeting, representatives of each faction jointly addressed a press conference where they said their leaders were working together to reposition the party.

In a joint statement issued later on both leaders said their meeting was without prejudice to all outstanding matters in court.

“This is without prejudice to all outstanding matters in court. At a meeting held this morning between the two of us, a holistic review of the state of affairs of our great party, PDP, was deliberated upon.

“In reviewing the crisis that has engulfed our party since the loss of the 2015 general elections after 15 years of uninterrupted leadership at the centre, it became obvious to both of us as principal actors that it is time to heal the wounds and bring about a united, focused and constructive opposition party that can bring sanity to our democratic process.”
