First Bank Nigeria

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, faction led by Ahmed Makarfi has said it has uncovered plans by the “ousted Chairman”, Ali Sheriff, and associates to deceive unsuspecting members of the party, security agencies and the general public to support his ambition to remain chairman of the party by claiming he has a Court Order.

The party, in a statement by Dayo Adeyeye, its spokesperson, on Thursday, said Mr. Sheriff has connived with some former and serving governors of the All Progressive Congress, APC, to completely cripple the PDP to serve the interest of the ruling party.

“It is now very clear that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is working very hard for the enemies of our great Party. First, the Edo Primary Election and all the processes leading to it thereof were properly conducted, monitored and observed by INEC.

“Edo PDP Chairman has warned Sheriff to stay clear of their affairs as the Party in the state is resolutely united behind Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the Candidate of the PDP,” Mr. Adeyeye said.

Mr. Sheriff had earlier on Thursday inaugurated three different committees to conduct fresh primary in Edo State.

The statement by the Makarfi faction however warned that any member of the party serving in any committee set up by Senator Sheriff will be engaging in anti-party activities and will face disciplinary action.

“We have concluded our investigations and discovered that there is no trace of any court order obtained by Senator Sheriff or any of his cohorts either at FCT high court or the Federal high court in Abuja or any court in Nigeria,” he said.
