Kano governor attacks PDP chair, Sheriff; says he’ll betray party in 2019

Abdullahi Ganduje

Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Thursday said the new national chairman of the PDP, Ali Sherriff, would end up working for the ruling APC in 2019, against his claim that PDP would reclaim power in 2019.

Mr. Ganduje said this on in Abuja while fielding questions from journalists at the monthly APC media roundtable.

According to him, the new PDP chairman does not have the clout to restore power to any party.

Mr. Sherriff had on Wednesday said that he would ensure power return to the PDP.

“I do not wish to engage in cross fire, but I will like to tell you that it is the normal utterance of one who wants to impress his followers.

“I believe it is an empty threat. Looking at the antecedents, the history of the chairman himself, we all know he is a cross-carpeter.

“He is always on the move in changing from one party to another. Even when he was in All Nigerian People’s Party (ANPP) for eight years, he was working for the Peoples Democratic Party.

“Even the APC started with him, and then he went back to the PDP and we were happy. I am sure in the long run he will work for us, and that is what I believe.

“We are happy because we believe in the long run he would work for us; find out his history, you will believe me,” he said.

On establishing state police, which some states have been clamouring for, the governor said the time was ripe to allow states to be in charge of their own policing and security.

“Given the situation we find ourselves, I think there is no better time we need the state police than now because the security at the moment requires intelligence information.

“It involves people who are conversant about the society, who are conversant with the tradition, who are conversant with the culture,” the governor said.

    I think the governor made a very fair assessment of the new PDP chairman! Something must be fundamentally wrong with PDP! A man who uses desperate measures to achieve his goals is not one that the PDP should court at this time! He even lost all his deposits in the last general elections! The only thing I see is that PDP thinks he can recruit Boko Haram to do the dirty job for them!

    We are just waiting to see how the PDP will fare under this new leadership. It seems that what Late General Azazi said about the BH has started to unfold. I learnt that the Borno PDP Chapter has dissociated itself from such charade.The state party chairman has distanced himself and his executives from such decision. they have even given ultimatum for the NWC to reconsider.
