Abuja - Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party are currently divided over who to support between Ali Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi, reports Today.

Of the party’s 12 state governors, only two – Darius Ishaku (Taraba) and Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe) have openly identified with Sheriff, who is from their North-East zone.
Ishaku had insisted that Sheriff had done his best for the party and deserved to be honoured according the News 24
Ishaku stated that he and Dankwambo endorsed Sheriff as the only candidate for the party’s chairmanship from North-East.
