The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has uncovered further plans by the ousted Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and co-travelers to deceive unsuspecting members of our Party, security agencies and the general public to support his ambition to remain as Chairman of the Party by claiming he has a Court Order.
The Party in a statement released by Prince Dayo Adeyeye, Member, PDP National Caretaker Committee For: Publicity, on Thursday, June 23, 2016 said Senator Sheriff has connived with some former and serving Governors of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to completely cripple the PDP to serve the interest of the ruling party.
“It is now very clear that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is working very hard for the enemies of our great Party . First, the Edo Primary Election and all the processes leading to it thereof were properly conducted , monitored and observed by INEC. Edo PDP Chairman has warned Sheriff to stay clear of their affairs as the Party in the state is resolutely united behind Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the Candidate of the PDP”.
The PDP warned that any of its members serving in any committee set up by Senator Sheriff will be engaging in anti-party activities and will face disciplinary action stressing that Sheriff did not display any Court order before the gentlemen of the press during his last press briefing.
“We have concluded our investigations and discovered that there is no trace of any court order obtained by Senator Sheriff or any of his cohorts either at FCT high court or the Federal high court in Abuja or any court in Nigeria”.
Finally, the Party urged all its members, the security agencies and the general public to disregard his claims and take it as one of his fraudulent antics saying that “whatever he says today is the rantings of a sinking man trying to hold on to the last straw”.
