The Ahmed Makarfi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and members of his faction of being paid agents of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, it said the Sheriff faction had not for once condemned the ruling party
The statement read, “We maintain that Sheriff and his co travelers are agents of the APC. We insist that they are paid agents of the ruling party to destabilize our great Party, the PDP; as it is evident that they are all profiting from the unwarranted conflict.
“While we are currently concerned about the massive rigging of the Elections in Rivers State by the APC, these agents of the devil care less about that. If they are true members of the Party, will they be gloating over the open robbery of our Party in Edo, Ondo and now Rivers?
“The latest outburst of these enemies of electoral and democratic processes no doubt, must be at the prompting of their sponsors who want to use them to divert attention from the electoral heist in Rivers State.
“Let the general public note that Sherriff and his cohorts have never for once spoken for the Party against the APC nor have they at anytime defended the interest of the Party in any way. All they have always done is to constitute a source of distraction, nuisance and irritation for us at very critical times. Quite unfortunate!
“Nigerians can now make up their minds whether Sheriff and company really belong to PDP.
“To this end, we are again calling on our members nationwide, teaming supporters and friends of the PDP to remain steadfast with the leadership of the Party in its bid to re-position the Party for our general good.”
