Embattled factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff, has said on Channels Tv, that he will not allow the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, succeed in their alleged plot to hijack the party.
This is as he said he would not withdraw any of the cases he had instituted against the party.
He said, “We will not let PDP to be hijacked by a few people like Governor Fayose and the governor of Rivers State. They have a script that they want someone to act, but I am a man of principle. This is not about Ali Sheriff; it is about democracy, and the rule of law.
“I never asked to be chairman of the PDP. I was asked to come and assist the party. I never wanted to be chairman of the PDP. I was sitting down in my house when leaders of the party begged me to come and help the party. Initially, I said no, but I later accepted.
“We won’t allow things to go wrong, the party will not be hijacked. If they agree to carry everybody along and take the convention to Abuja, I am ready to step down today.”
Also Sheriff while reacting to the recommendation made by the PDP Board of Trustees Reconciliation Committee, that all court cases instituted against the party by its members be withdrawn immediately said he would not do so.
