Sheriff’s choice as PDP chairman best for our party – Fayose

Ayo Fayose, Ekiti state governor.

The Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, has hailed the emergence of a former governor of Borno State, Ali Sheriff, as the national chairman of the PDP, calling on all members and supporters of the party to support the new chairman.

Mr. Fayose, who spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said the choice of Mr. Sheriff was in the best interest of the party.

“I have always defended the party even at the risk of my position, personal security and comfort.

“I have always stood for the truth, and I cannot now be part of any decision that won’t represent the party well.

“I supported the processes that led to the emergence of Ali Modu Sheriff because I believe in him and for those who may be aggrieved for one reason or the other; I plead that they should sheath their sword in the overall interest of our party.

“Most importantly, the reality that we must all face is that we are in a peculiar situation and such a situation deserves a peculiar approach.

“What the party leaders have done therefore is to tackle the present situation in our party with the most appropriate solution and we must all stand by Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, who is our present solution to our present situation.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) knows Senator Ali Modu Sheriff’s capacity in terms of political network, being a three term senator and two term governor, and must be afraid that with such a person as the PDP Chairman, their regime of lies will be over soon,” Mr. Fayose said.

    Mr Fayose,with all of Ali Modu Sheriff’s ‘political connection’ how many votes did he get for GEJ in the immediate past Presidential election? Better still,when Sherrif decamped to PDP,are you aware that he was not able to deliver even a SINGLE SENATOR, a SINGLE HOUSE OF REPS.MEMBER,a SINGLE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY MEMBER and NOT even a SINGLE LOCAL GIVERNMENT CHAIRMAN/COUNCILLOR in the WHOLE of Borno State? I think those that the gods want to destroy,they first make them MAD.Fortunately for most discerning minds,the PDP is supretending over it’s final demise by this appointment.

    Onward march to sambisa forest. PDP youths are in trouble!

  • aisha ani

    Fayose, you are a liar. We all know you don’t care for this new Sheriff.

  • Ade Omowest

    PDP has just made a superb choice of Modu Sherrif as acting chairman,
    The next step is to pick Dasuki as the 2019 presidential candidate and
    Ayodele Fayose as the vice. With this combination Sai Buhari will face
    stiff opposition in the next elections. Can anybody suggest a better
    alternative? Hhahahaha, the end of PDPig is near.

    • wazobia scatter!!!!!!


      i was thinking sheriff as the presidential candidate and fayose the vice president ……………………….. with sheriff “snookered” a year into their presidency and fayose emerging as the president ……………………………i pity whoever would be the american president as he would abuse the crap out of them and expose his illiteracy to the whole world ………..i shudder to think of this possibility …………………..

    • tundemash

      And Imam Shekau as spokesman.

  • C3kwe

    I beg to differ. This is a wrong appointment at a wrong time. The Apc propaganda machine will destroy him.

    • tundemash

      Name us one better different from Modu within PDPigs. A fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.

  • onyefeze

    Going! Going!! Going!! Please help me to say GONE! There was once a party called PDP at the national level.

  • tundemash

    Mr. Lunatic gov, I agree with you. No one in his sane mind would be Chairman of a nest of killers. When is Imam Shekau taking over from Oloshi Metuh as spokesman please ?

  • Cleartruth

    Fayose you got it wrong this time around. I have been supporting you for your good opposition to apc , but the choice of sheriff who has a bokoharam burden is a death sentence to pdp. That is the truth.
