Perhaps, there is finally an end in sight to the leadership crisis plaguing the People Democratic Party‎ (PDP) as former President Goodluck Jonathan has promised more commitment to get the warring factions to resolve their differences.

Jonathan, who spoke on Wednesday when he hosted members of PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) led by its Chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin, said though he had been talking to individual members of the party, he would do more to end the crisis.

‎This was the first time the former president would be speaking on the state of the PDP since he left office on May 29 last year.

Jonathan, who was reported to have told party’s members shortly before he handed over to President Muhammadu Buhari that he would go on sabbatical leave in politics, was forced to break his silence following the continued polarisation of the party along Senators Ahmed Makarfi-led National Working Committee and Ali Modu Sheriff factions.

He, however, told the BoT members: “I have been talking to individuals (members of the party) but not in a way that is exposed to media but I believe I should do more.”
