THE national caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, is expected to resume work on Wednesday.
This follows the order of the police, on Tuesday to reopen he national headquarters of the party in Abuja, thereby allowing staff back to their office, following a request from the Board of Trustees (BoT).
The detachment of armed policemen which had laid siege on the premises for nine days, was withdrawn, even though some of the personnel were left there to keep eyes on things.
However, only a few staff showed up for work on the first day of opening the office, as most of them were unaware that they could be allowed access on Tuesday.
Those who came were thoroughly identified before they were allowed into the premises.
Secretary of the BoT, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, confirmed to reporters that the party requested the police to reopen the office to enable the staff to resume work.
He was scheduled to address the staff Tuesday afternoon, but it was pushed to Wednesday, since not many staff were aware of the reopening.
Maduekwe said: “We (BoT) requested for police to unseal the place so that workers can resume work.”
Meanwhile, the fate of the former national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, who is still claiming the post, despite the decision of the national convention to institute the caretaker committee, is unknown.
