PDP accuses Sheriff of working for the enemies of the party

24 June 2016, 14:13

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the self-acclaimed National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff of working against the progress of the party.

Reacting to the inauguration of a congress committee for Edo election, Dayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee, in a statement said Sheriff has proven that he does not mean well for the party.

“It is now very clear that Ali Modu Sheriff is working very hard for the enemies of our great party. First the Edo primaries and all the processes leading to it were properly conducted, monitored and observed by INEC. Edo PDP chairman has warned Sheriff to stay clear of their affairs,” Adeyeye said in a statement.

“The party in the state is resolutely united behind Ize Iyamu the candidate. Anyone who serves in any committee set up by Sheriff will be engaging in anti-party activity and will face disciplinary action.

“As Sheriff did not display any court order before the gentlemen of the press please disregard his claims and take it as one of fraudulent antics. Whatever he said today is the rantings of a sinking man trying to hold on to the last straw.”

Earlier on Thursday, Sheriff inaugurated five committees to oversee the conduct of another primary election in Edo.

He described the previous primary as illegal, advising members of the party to disregard it.
