Ali Modu Sheriff

Femi Fani-Kayode also criticised the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over its choice of former Borno State Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s new chairman.

A group of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) elders, under the aegis of PDP Rescue Group, have asked the newly selected party chairman, Ali Modu-Sheriff, to resign.

The leader of the group, Wilberforce Juta said “most PDP members did not see in Sheriff a model of impeccable integrity that the party badly needed to lead it at this critical moment.

“We are upset by the decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party in appointing Ali Modu-Sheriff as national chairman.”

He also said “We are convinced that this decision is against the will and wish of the generality of members.

“We know for a fact the North-East Zonal wing, having been directed by the National Caucus of the party to forward nominees from the zone, did not nominate Modu-Sheriff for the position of national chairman.”

“Consequently, Modu-Sheriff should do the needful by stepping down honourably as it is evident that party members nationwide have overwhelmingly rejected him,” Juta said.

The PDP elder also said “It is, therefore, critical if the PDP must come back to national reckoning, that we remodel its leadership on the platform of honesty as required by the party manifesto.”

Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode also criticised the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over its choice of former Borno State Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s new chairman.
