Respect yourself, respect PDP, respect Nigeria; Ali Modu Sheriff tells Fayose

Respect yourself, respect PDP, respect Nigeria; Ali Modu Sheriff tells Fayose Sheriff and Fayose



ABUJA— Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, yesterday, begged governors elected on the platform of the party not to do anything that would further divide it. Sheriff spoke in Abuja when leaders of the party from the South-West paid him a solidarity visit.

According to Senator Sheriff, as important as the governors are to the party, they must not do anything that will further divide the party.

He particularly called on Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, who had been very vocal in criticising the leadership of Senator Sheriff to “respect himself and respect the PDP.”

This came  on a day members of the party in the House of Representatives threatened to drag Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to the Supreme Court in a bid to upturn the recent

Appeal Court judgment that recognised him (Sheriff) as the authentic national chairman of the party. Addressing those who visited him, Sheriff said:  “Yes, our governors are very important people.

They are leaders of the party in their own right. I beg them not to divide the party. Let everybody unite and build the party. Asks Fayose to respect himself ‘’For Governor

Ayo Fayose, I have no issues to join with him because I cannot even comment on some of the things he says and does. Doing that would amount to coming back to his level.

But I beg him to respect himself, to respect the PDP, respect Nigeria because whatever you say today, posterity will judge you. I beg him to control himself.” He reiterated his earlier stand that the decision of the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt was a victory for every member of the PDP, adding that his desire was to work towards organising a credible convention that would produce a leadership to take PDP to higher height.

“As I said, this victory is for every member of  PDP.; there is no loser. People can vent their anger but as a leader and father of everybody, I want to make sure that this party is united.” Reps caucus plans to approach S-Court Meanwhile, members of the party in the House of Representatives, yesterday, threatened to drag Senator Ali Modu

Sheriff to the Supreme Court in a bid to upturn the recent Appeal Court judgment that recognised him (Sheriff) as the authentic national chairman of the party.

The PDP caucus also told Sheriff to hands off  the party and  declared their support for the Senator Ahmed Markarfi-led faction of the party. The lawmakers in a statement signed by its leader, Leo Ogor, expressed utter disappointment with the Appeal Court judgment that recognised Sheriff as national chairman of the party, saying the decision deserved to be challenged at the Supreme Court.

The Caucus emphasized that while a political solution might be considered later, there was need to approach the Supreme Court with hope for a final interpretation of the law that would serve the interest of the people.

The statement read:  “The PDP caucus of the House of Representative wishes to state categorically that it finds the Court of Appeal verdict that nullified the decision of the national convention of the PDP on May 21, 2016 and reinstated the Modu Sheriff leadership very discomforting, the Caucus supports the decision of the Ahmed Makarfi Caretaker Committee to seek redress at the Supreme Court.

“The Caucus appeals to all leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party to please remain calm and focused, standing firmly on the position that there is no way the party will accept the Ali Modu Sheriff contraption which is yet to demonstrate any genuine iota of love for the party.

“Their activities in Edo and Ondo states are very fresh in peoples’ minds and as such, no honest and sincere member of our party can trust them; with such fundamental flaws of character and gross disdain for peace, order and brotherly relations.”
