PDP Crisis: I'll Quit Office After Convention, Says Sheriff


Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja

The reinstated National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has urged all those itching to get rid of him to wait for the national convention to vote for a new leader of the party.

Sheriff said that prior to the declaration of the Appeal Court, both himself and the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, had reached an agreement that they would abide by the verdict and that no one would do anything further to destroy the party.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, Sheriff pleaded with the governors and those who are opposed to his emergence as national chairman not to do anything that would further divide the party, adding that he understands that most of them had spoken out of anger.

More to come…
