Sheriff rejects Anenih’s pardon

01 August 2016, 12:02

Abuja - Factional Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has rejected the clearance of former Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party, Tony Anenih, of anti-party activities by the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led ‎National Caretaker Committee.

Sheriff was responding to a letter written by the secretary of the party’s caretaker committee, Senator Ben Obi re-admitting Anenih into the party’s Board of trustees.

The caretaker committee, in a letter dated July 22, and addressed to Anenih, informed him of the party’s withdrawal of the summon notice.

But Sheriff in a statement on Sunday signed by one Bernard Mikko‎, said any effort to re-admit Chief Anenih as a member of BoT will have to follow due process.

The statement reads: “National Working Committee (NWC) issued a query to Tony Anenih in April 2015 as part of disciplinary procedures for his anti party activities in Imo State during the 2015 General elections in line with Article 57(4) of the PDP Constitution 2012 (as amended).

“Anenih did not respond to the query but chose to tender a letter of resignation as BoT member. Up till date, the query remains unanswered and his resignation remains valid.

“Any effort to re-admit the chief will have to follow due process which is well known to all party members. If the chief is desirous of returning as member of the BoT, he should re-apply to the party, with his response to the pending query for consideration.

“Party members are hereby assured that no individual or group will be prejudiced in the enforcement of discipline and the application of the rule of law”,
