Ali Modu Sheriff rejects PDP’s BOT Truce moves, Says Makarfi must go

Embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff‎, has rejected calls by Board of Trustees (BoT) for a truce. Ali Modu Sheriff insisted that the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee must be dissolved.

Sheriff speaking through his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and his special adviser on media, Inuwa Bwala, that the BoT proposal was a far cry from the recommendation of the reconciliation committee headed by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State and a former deputy senate president, Ibrahim Mantu.

“We completely reject the vote of confidence past on the illegal caretaker committee because a committee that has failed twice to successfully organize a convention on two occasion is a failure.

“We, therefore, call on his friends and associates and family to advice him to do the needful and resign now to save multi-party democracy in Nigeria and stop impunity that has been the bone of internal democracy.

“That the BoT chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin’s chairmanship has brought crisis to the party. In any case his tenure has expired as he has spent more than 10 years as Secretary and Chairman BoT which runs contrary to the Constitution,” he said.
