Ahmed Makarfi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused
factional chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff of working for the All Progressives Congress (APC).The Makarfi PDP also
said that Sheriff and his supporters are trying to destroy the party.
The comments were made by PDP spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.
“At the charade called campaign flag-off, not a word of condemnation was
uttered by the ‘PDP members’ against the APC government, but rather, abusive
words were hurled at Governor Olusegun Mimiko, the Chairman of PDP Governors
Forum, whereas, the contestant the so called PDP members are to wrestle for
people’s vote with, is an APC candidate. What an irony..!” Adeyeye said in
reference to the Sheriff faction’s governorship campaign in Ondo.
“As much as we don’t intend to banter words with this former
members of the PDP, we however, feel constrained to put in the public domain
once again, facts as it relates to the intents of these agents of the ruling
All Progressives Congress (APC) masquerading as PDP members.
“We wish to state clearly that Ali Modu-Sheriff and his ilk are
known enemies of our party, planted to destabilize the vibrant party that
provided good leadership for the country for 16 years.
“We can say without fear of contradiction and as well, challenge
Nigerians to point out where, even, for once, those parading themselves as PDP
members, have dare to issue a statement condemning any of the several gaffes of
the APC government.
“We say clearly that not for once has Modu-Sheriff and his team of
confused travellers said a word against the mis-governance of the APC. We are
not surprised because we know it’s suicidal for a servant to criticize the
master,” he added.
The PDP has been suffering a leadership crisis since it attempted to remove
Sheriff as chairman in May.
