PDP: Sherrif, in League with APC, Set to Kill Our Party
The National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the weekend cried out that its embattled former acting national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sherrif, in league with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is set to kill the party.
"It is now evident to all discerning minds in the country that the former acting National Chairman (Senator Ali Modu Sherrif) is on a designed mission to kill and destroy the party," the PDP said through its interim spokesperson, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.
The party's caretaker committee further alleged that "Sheriff and his group have been shopping and approaching law courts with dubious information for interlocutory orders to keep them afloat until it frustrates its gubernatorial elections in Edo and Ondo states as designed by their sponsors."
The party said intelligence available to it shows that Senator Sheriff in league with some agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC having nothing to lose and everything to gain if it helps destroy the PDP has continued to enjoy the support of non PDP members to carry out their nefarious acts.
Adeyeye further said that members of the party across the country are already aware of the evil desires of the former Borno state Governor but have chosen to ignore him.
"Legitimacy in politics is not given through a procured interlocutory injunction but through the mandate of the people and Sheriff and his cohorts will soon realize this.
"We are aware that Sheriff sponsors have urged him to sustain his illicit role for a while and create a semblance of a faction in the party to give way for some elected PDP members to take the advantage to decamp but unknown to them members of our great party are aware of their game and have vowed to resist them," he further claimed.
The Senator Ahmed Makarfi- led leadership of the PDP urged the judiciary to be wary of dubious information and always block anything that would diminish their enviable role as the pillar in the sustenance of democracy in the country.
"Finally, PDP assured its members that the caretaker committee under Senator Ahmed Markefi remain committed to discharging the assignment given to them by members and have refused to be distracted even as it warns members to beware of Greek gifts being offered by agents whose mission is nothing but to kill this great party," he declared.
