What I would have done if Sheriff had won at Supreme Court — Fayose


Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, said he would have burnt his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card if the court had declared Ali Modu Sheriff chairman of the party.

He said he would have also destroyed the party’s flag in his possession.

Mr. Fayose, who returned to the state on Friday after the Wednesday’s Supreme Court session, stated this while addressing PDP supporters in Ado-Ekiti.

He said he would have destroyed his membership card of the party and the flag right at the court premises if the verdict had been in favour of Sheriff.

“I never imagined myself being in the same party with impostors,” he said.

The governor, however, said Mr. Sheriff and his followers had been forgiven but won’t go scot-free for causing the party members so much pain.

“I went to court with a perfume which I wanted to use to spray my cards and party flags and set them ablaze even within the court premises if Sheriff had won; that was why I went to court.

“Although I believe that we remain the same PDP family, no one can cause our party such pains and embarrassment and expect that he will go without being asked to account for his actions.

“The ‘no victor, no vanquished’ that we said was a mere political slogan. Whoever that participated in this charade must show some reasonable level of remorse for his actions,” he said.

    Sherrff can now go to APC and collect his reward; he tried.

      PDP shot itself in the foot once, and will still do it again.

      • Frank Bassey

        I disagree. It will not do that again. God is a perfect Worker. It is good this is happening when Nigerians are in dire need of real CHANGE, not the colourless, deceptive, and hypocritical stuff dished out by the Association of Pretentious Characters.

      Sheriff was given the position by all knowing Fayose not APC.

      God will forgive you Frank Bassey! Have you forgotten that Fayose and Wike, impressed by the way Modu Sherrif once openly lambasted and insulted Tinubu during the formative stage of APC before walking out of the party, ignorantly decided he is their ideal man for the chairmanship job? Is that not how Modu became a fish bone in PDP’s throat? Serious fishbone o …, wey be say to swallow like this na gbege; and to vomit sef na WAEC! If no be opelope Supreme Court…! Mistakes wey una make korokoro eye, una go dey blame another person!

        Agreed! Shrrif was chosen to conclude the tenure of the PDP chair zoned to the North East. His choice was to douse a tension over who would succeed Muazu under whose tenure the party lost the Presidency. At that time, many PDP chieftains from that zone where found to have compromised the party’s interest in order to return power to the North, under any guise. Remember it was in Bauchi, a PDP-controlled state that Jonathan was stoned by the people in the full glare of security personnel. Sherff agreed to step aside at the end of his tenure (assumed mistakenly chosen by Fayose, Wike and co.), instead of abiding by that understanding, he insisted in contesting for the substantive Chair of the party, against the wish of even those that brought him in to douse tension in PDP. He was allowed to contest, but he failed at the screening stage having failed to meet the laid down criteria for the position. He insisted and began to procure court judgements from his co-travellers, Justice Okon Abang, and co. His subsequent actions showed he was a dangerous mole in the party. His moves contributed to the re-organisation in the Judiciary that led to the transfer of Abang to Delta State. Even without being a Lawyer, what is the merit in approaching the Supreme Court to stop Makarfi from filing a suit to hear Makarfi’s position that Sheriff had no grounds to take the party to court? Did you not see that his action, in conjunction with that of Jimoh Ibrahim, led to the demotion of a SAN who played an ignoble role in the Ondo election? Na greed dey make people’s eyes bigger than their stomach. When you take haste swallow hot razor blade, your intestine no go gree you write NECO, not to talk of WAEC. Let’s see where Sherrif goes next.

        • Owejah

          I appreciate your flawless response devoid of insulting language. Kudos also for acknowledging the roles played by APC govt in dealing with Justice Okon, Sheriff’s confederate in this confusion. Next time you blame someone wrongly, I will come with a cane. This time, you are forgiven. LOL!!! Respect!
