'We trust Sheriff’s ability to reposition PDP' - Governors Forum

18 February 2016, 07:39

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Governors Forum has expressed confidence in the ability of newly appointed National Chairman of PDP Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, to reposition the party and make it more inclusive.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Coordinator of the forum, Osaro Onaiwu in Abuja on Wednesday.

The governors, according to the statement, said the emergence of Sheriff, ex-governor and senator, was one done after careful deliberation given the battle ahead.

“Sheriff is coming on the job with immense wealth of experience and will no doubt use his vast network to rebuild the party.

“He will restore members’ confidence and act as a counterforce to the many antics of the present APC regime.”

The governors urged the new national chairman to avoid all diversionary tactics and work toward uniting all aggrieved members and fashion out modalities to woo new party faithful.

“We urge you to shun all diversionary tactics that might be thrown at you and concentrate on how to bring all aggrieved party members together; as well as fashion out ways to woo new members especially the youths.

“The forum is solidly behind you and will deploy its support to ensure that the shared vision for our party is realised as we prepare for 2019.”

The governors said the situation in the country was an opportunity for Sheriff to show that the PDP remained the only truly national party that could reunite the country.
