I Don’t recognise Sheriff as PDP Chairman – Former Deputy Speaker

February 27, 2017, 6:11 am

A former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Emeka Ihedioha, has kicked against recognising Alhaji Modu Sheriff as the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Chairman.

Ihedioha said in Port Harcourt on Monday that Sheriff by his conduct had failed to show an attitude worthy of uniting and strengthening the party.

According to him, the conduct, actions, language and temperament displayed by Sheriff has succeeded in planting disunity amongst members.

He said, “His utterances after the Appeal Court judgment in Port Harcourt created division in the party rather than unit members, this showed that he is not interested in the progress of our party.

“Sheriff has nothing to show as his contribution toward the growth of our party, both in his state and at the national level.

“It will interest you to know that Sheriff has never participated in any state or national convention of the PDP.

“He was only a contractor that was brought into the party to play a leadership role in our trying times and I think that the brief period of three months assigned to him by the party has long expired.”

He said that the party would appeal the court ruling that recognised Sheriff as its national chairman.

He also assured party members that there was enough evidence at the party’s disposal with which it would claim victory at the apex court.

Ihedioha, therefore, urged party faithful to continue to support the Sen. Ahmed Makarfi’s PDP which was duly adopted by the well-meaning party faithful.

He said, “I believe that the judiciary as an unbiased umpire will deliver fair judgment at the apex court and I know that the judgment will vindicate us by granting Markafi’s victory.”
