I’m PDP chairman, Modu Sheriff insists

A factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Sheriff, says he remains the leader of the party.

Addressing journalists after a Supreme Court ruling on the Ondo election on Thursday, Mr. Sheriff said he was surprised that the media reported he had been replaced.

An Abuja Division of the Appeal Court had on Wednesday sacked the candidate of the Sheriff faction for the Ondo governorship election, which is holding on Saturday.

The Court upturned the decision of a Federal High Court.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Mr. Sheriff said the court ruling had nothing to do with the lingering leadership tussle with another faction of the party led by Ahmed Makarfi, a former governor of Kaduna State.

“I am surprised at some of the reporting you media people are carrying; all the reporting yesterday was not correct because the issue in the lower court, is the issue of governorship of Ondo state,” he said.

“The Court of Appeal has not touched on who is the leader or who is the substantive national chairman of the PDP.”

He said the case between the two factions was still at the Court of Appeal.

The Port Harcourt division of the Appeal Court on Thursday withheld its judgement on the matter.
