Senegalese President Lauds PMB On The Gambia


President Macky Sall of Senegal has thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his intervention in The Gambian impasse that led to the restoration of democracy in the West African country.
This is contained in a statement issued by the special adviser media, Femi Adesina.
Former President Yahya Jammeh had baulked at handing over power to Adama Barrow, winner of an election held last December, but ECOWAS leaders, under the inspiration of President Buhari, insisted Jammeh must quit at the expiration of his term in January. He did, rather involuntarily.
In a communication with the Nigerian leader,  Sall said: “Thank you again for your support in The Gambia. May Almighty Allah give you greater health and energy to conduct the destiny of Nigeria.” The Senegalese president described himself as President Buhari’s “younger brother,” and prayed that Allah would bestow good health and wisdom on the Nigerian leader.
PDP will come out stronger from Current Crisis – Jonathan
Former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has insisted that a political solution remained the best option to tackling the ongoing crisis bedeviling the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Jonathan also said the party will come out of its current crisis stronger.
The ex-president who spoke while receiving governor Dickson, who led two members of the Reconciliation Committee, the Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Engr. Muhammed Abba-Gana and a former Member of the Federal House of Representative, Hajia Halwa Ilusa Kida, to his Otuoke country home urged the contending parties to embrace compromise and negotiations as a way out of the current challenge.
Dr Jonathan expressed reservation over the use of courts to settle purely political matters, stressing that a political solution would ensure a win-win outcome for the warring groups within the party.
He said, “Party difference, no matter what is like family squabbles.  The best option to resolve it is out of the court. Yes, the purpose of the Courts is known to us. If you cannot resolve the differences, you head to the Court. Most cases, when families go to court, they don’t come out smiling.”
“So, even if somebody wins, the family is forever divided. I I take a longer time to come together. But if they are able to resolve their difference, they immediately start smiling and embrace. I believe party differences should take that patter.”
He regretted that the present crisis within the PDP has gone to the High Court and the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court, “But let me assure you that PDP will emerge stronger. We are talking to ourselves and people should not be worried, we will come out stronger.”
