Former PDP ministers threaten to dump party over Sheriff

26 April 2016, 10:39

Abuja - Some former ministers, who served under the Peoples Democratic Party-controlled Federal Government between 1999 and 2015 have threatened to dump the party if its current National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff returns to office on May 21.

The ex- ministers insisted that they would not be in a party that would be led by the former governor of Borno State from that date.

They insisted that Sheriff should leave at the expiration of his tenure in May as stated in the agreement between him and party leaders.

The ex- ministers , who recently met in Abuja vowed not to sit at a meeting to be presided over Sheriff after the party's convention on May on 21.

However, sources at the  meeting said the debate on Sheriff was tough and that the seven-point agenda of the meeting nearly tore the ranks of the ex-ministers.
