Ex- Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, has given reasons why Ali Modu Sheriff should not be recognized as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The former Deputy Speaker disclosed this on Monday while speaking in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
According to the former Speaker, “His utterances after the Appeal Court judgment in Port Harcourt created division in the party rather than unite members. This showed that he is not interested in the progress of our party.
“Sheriff has nothing to show as his contribution towards the growth of our party, both in his state and at the national level.
“It will interest you to know that Sheriff has never participated in any state or national convention of the PDP.
“He was only a contractor that was brought into the party to play a leadership role in our trying times and I think that the brief period of three months assigned to him by the party has long expired.
“I believe that the judiciary as an unbiased umpire will deliver fair judgment at the apex court and I know that the judgment will vindicate us by granting Markafi’s victory.”he added.
