- Urge INEC to disregard Sheriff’s petition
Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
The chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said that the latest attempt by the former National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, and his cohorts to scuttle the forthcoming National Convention was another clear evidence of his determination to destroy the PDP.
Makarfi, in a statement issued on Wednesday by the spokesman of the caretaker committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, urged the INEC to disregard the protest letter submitted by Senator Sheriff against the holding of the August 17 PDP national convention.
“We call on INEC to disregard the letter from the former National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, and his cohorts. It belongs to the garbage bin. He is merely acting the script of his paymasters. The caretaker committee will continue with its dogged determination to organize the best national convention in the history of our great party.
