The senate caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party has called for a political solution to the party’s lingering crisis. 
According to the PDP senators, Ahmed Markarfi and Modu Sherrif cannot contest for chairmanship position of the party in the future.
They also asked both men to step down after presenting their speeches at the planned convention of the party. 
The new Spokesperson of PDP senate caucus, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, said they wanted to prevent a situation where the Supreme Court would impose a decision on the party that would be disadvantageous to the PDP.
