I remain PDP chairman, Sheriff insists

Senator Ali Modu Sheriff says he remains the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), The Cable reports.

Sheriff said the case decided on Wednesday by the Court of Appeal had nothing to do with the party’s chairmanship.

“I’m surprised at some of the reporting you media people are carrying, all the reporting yesterday was not correct because the issue in the lower court, is the issue of governorship of Ondo state,” Sheriff said.

“That issue is between the state chairmen and the chairmen of the other group, the court of appeal has not touched anything on who is the leader or who is the substantive national chairman of the PDP that is the issue in the court of appeal. The Supreme Court says the Court of Appeal to hear that matter.

“If the court appeal decides that they should hear that matter – saying Makarfi is the chairman, there is no issue like this, Ali Sheriff remains the substantive chairman of the PDP until the Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt (gives judgement otherwise) – and the Supreme Court also ask the court now to go and hear that matter, so therefore the issue of discussion therefore is between Jegede and Jimoh Ibrahim. We are not party to it. We will abide by any decision of court, we are law-abiding citizens.”.
