Support New Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff – PDP Begs Members

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors’ Forum has called on party members aggrieved over the emergence of Ali Modu Sheriff as the substantive Chairman to support the new leadership so as to return the party to its former status. This was contained in a statement by the coordinator of the Forum, Mr. Osaro Onaiwu. According to the governors, it was normal for dissent views to occur in a national party like the PDP. They, however, urged members to come together and re-strategise ahead of the upcoming elections in Edo and Ondo State in 2016 and the 2019 election and other coming elections. The forum gave the call following the nationwide outcry that greeted the appointment of Sheriff as substantive Chairman of the party. The statement reads, “It has come to our notice that some members of our great party have expressed their reservations on the emergence of the new National Chairman, Modu Sheriff. “As is expected, not everybody can be on the same page in such matters even though of the same party. We wish to appeal to our members to keep the bigger picture in mind, which is to reposition ahead of 2019 with individuals that have the track record in power .. “It is in this regard that our esteemed members should think carefully before joining the crowd of those baying ‘death to the PDP.’ “As a national party, it is important that every matter is looked at from all sides and not just the negative narrative of the opposition party. “None of our leaders have been arraigned for terrorism . charges unlike some leaders of the ruling party; it is this we should take clear cognisance of. “For our party to make the expected headway, we must remain united, discuss our disagreements as a family and refrain from joining those whose desire is to see that the party’s resurgence never happens.”
