Abuja - Governors elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have once again rejected Ali Modu Sheriff as the party's National Chairman, reports Channels.

The governors have vowed not to recognise Sheriif as Chairman of the party.

The governors, who met in Abuja on Thursday, also explained why they withdrew their support for Sheriff at the aborted Port Harcourt convention after giving him the assurance that he had their support.

Gov Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues said they were against anything that will make Sheriff turn such an opportunity into telling the party that he wants to become President of Nigeria.

Sheriff has forcefully taken over the secretariat of party on Tuesday and claimed leadership of the party according to News 24.

He stated that his tenure as Chairman of the party expires in 2018.
