‘Modu-Sheriff is still our chairman’ | Ogun state PDP has a surprising stand

Despite the sack of Ali Modu-Sheriff as the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Ogun state chapter of the party today said that it still recognises Sheriff as the chairman of PDP.

This was contained in a communique issued by the Publicity Secretary of the Ogun state PDP, Bolaji Adeniji.

The communique reads: “The gathering in Abuja and a caretaker committee purportedly constituted on the Port-Harcourt convention ground after the chairman’s press briefing (suspending the convention) is ‘ultra vires, illegal, null and void and of no binding effect.

“Ogun PDP clearly stands by the rule of law and consequently, we support the National Working Committee, under the leadership of Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff.

“The aborted Port-Harcourt national convention of our party remains suspended and invalid. Two separate court orders barred the conduct of elections into three offices and 18 offices respectively and for this reason, the National Chairman postponed the convention; making it ‘fait accompli’. Subject to article 33 of the PDP constitution (as amended 2012), no convention of our party can stand without the presence and convocation of same by the national chairman.”
