Sheriff, Makarfi disagree over Anenih’s BoT membership

The Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party has said that former Minister of Works, Tony Anenih is no longer a member of Board of Trustees of the party.

The faction said Anenih voluntarily resigned from the Board instead of responding to the query issued to him for alleged anti-party activities in 2015.

Anenih was summoned by the National Working Committee in a letter dated May 19, 2015 and signed by the then PDP National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo, requesting him to appear before it.

However, Anenih shunned the summon and voluntarily relinquished the BoT chairmanship position.

But, the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee, in a letter dated July 22, informed him of the party’s withdrawal of the summon notice.

The letter, signed by the Secretary to the committee, Senator Ben Obi, read in part, “With a view, to finally clearing all issues relating to this matter and based on your request to meet with the current Caretaker Committee, and the agreed meeting which took place on July 13, 2016, the Committee Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, wishes to thank you for appearing before it to finally clear all issues relating to this matter.

“Having heard from you, and made some consultations, the Caretaker Committee has reviewed the whole episode and decided to withdraw the said letter from and by the defunct National Working Committee.”

However, the Sheriff faction on Sunday in Abuja, said there was no way the former minister would return as a member of the Board without replying the query.
