PDP governors beg Sheriff

31 May 2016, 12:55

Jalingo - Governors elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are currently begging the former National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff reports Daily Trust.

The governors are pleading with Sheriff to withdraw the court case he instituted challenging his removal from office.

Sheriff was removed from office during the party’s convention in Port Harcourt on May 21.

The governors according to Daily Post said the only solution to the crisis bedeviling the party was for Sheriff to withdraw his suit from the court, so that the party would forge ahead.

Gov Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, who spoke on behalf of other PDP governors, said Sheriff  had done his best for the party and deserved to be honoured.

Ishaku lamented that the way Sheriff was eased out of the party was not honourable for a person that did well for it. 

Ishaku recalled that he and the governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, endorsed Sheriff as the only candidate for the party’s chairmanship from North-East.

He said they, however, changed their mind at the party’s national convention held in Port Harcourt, when Sheriff was rejected by 10 out of 12 governors.
