Sheriff remains our leader – Ogun PDP

27 May 2016, 14:01

Abeokuta - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State has said it recognises the party’s national leadership headed by Ali Modu Sheriff.

The party stated that it will not support the national caretaker committee led by Ahmed Makarfi, a former governor of Kaduna State.

In a communiqué issued on Thursday after its expanded state executive committee meeting, PDP in Ogun State noted that two separate court orders barred the conduct of elections into three offices and 18 others respectively.

The communiqué reads: “The gathering in Abuja and a caretaker committee purportedly constituted on the Port-Harcourt convention ground after the chairman’s press briefing (suspending the convention) is ‘ultra vires, illegal, null and void and of no binding effect.

“Ogun PDP clearly stands by the rule of law and consequently, we support the National Working Committee, under the leadership of Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff.

“The aborted Port-Harcourt national convention of our party remains suspended and invalid.

"Two separate court orders barred the conduct of elections into three offices and 18 offices respectively and for this reason, the National Chairman postponed the convention; making it ‘fait accompli’. Subject to article 33 of the PDP constitution (as amended 2012), no convention of our party can stand without the presence and convocation of same by the national chairman.”
