Sheriff speaks on PDP crisis and why Jonathan lost the election.

Ali Modu Sheriff, the national chairman of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed not to work with people causing crisis in the party.
Ali Modu Sheriff, the acting national chairman of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed not to work with people causing crisis in the party, Premium Times reports. Sheriff made this known when a delegation of the Arewa Social Media Forum led by Yusuf Dingyadi paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Thursday, February 25. 

Ali Modu Sheriff, the national chairman of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed not to work with people causing crisis in the party “We have the mandate of the party members and leaders to reposition the party and we will not work with anyone who will create crisis or violence in the party, no matter their position. “The party has suffered enough for its mistakes, and members and indeed Nigerians are looking forward toward a repositioned PDP,” he said. 

According to Sheriff, the crisis in the PDP was man-made and self-inflicted. He added the PDP lost the presidential election to the APC due to injustice and frustration of members by some leaders in the party. 

Meanwhile, former ministers who are members of the PDP have rejected the appointment of Sheriff as its party’s national chairman. In a communique from a meeting held by the PDP ministers’ forum, the ministers resolved that the appointment process of Modu-Sheriff is illegitimate. The ministers also commended and supported the PDP board of trustees for rejecting “the imposition of Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff for lack of transparency and internal democracy in the process”. The forum further called for the conduct of congresses at all levels of the party.
