Ali-Modu-Sheriff-1-800x600


The power tussle within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP seems to have an end in sight as the factional National Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff of the party has indicated his willingness to step down if asked to.

Ali Modu Sheriff while speaking to some state chairman of the party noted that he will vacate office should the leadership of the party demand his vacation from office.

He said: “I’m ready to go. I’m not saying I must be the national chairman at all costs. I was invited to lead the party and the election that brought me to office was done at the NEC Hall of the party at its national secretariat”.

Further speaking to some of the state chairman in the meeting held in Abuja, he said: “Four other aspirants contested against me at the NEC meeting.

“The governors invited me among others to be considered by the NEC and the NEC sat and elected me as the national chairman of the party

“There’s nothing personal about my being there or individual pride about it. It is about the rule of law and the rule of law must not give way to illegalities.”

He further noted that his tenure will expire in 2018 as he came into office to replace Ahmed Mu’azu in 2014.

He said: “Ahmed Mu’azu got his election when former President, Goodluck Jonathan was elected as the party’s presidential candidate in 2015. I replaced him. So, my tenure would expire after four years in office”.
