Stubborn Sheriff storms PDP office, confronts police

Undeterred by the recent decision of the party’s BoT, former national chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ali Modu Sheriff on Monday morning stormed the Wadata Plaza Secretariat of the party.

Sheriff accompanied by a retinue of aides and supporter said he was there to resume ‘normal duties’.

The party’s BoT had thrown its support behind Sen Ahmed Makarfi, who was appointed at the recent Port Harcourt national convention of the Party, to head a Care Taker Committee, to make arrangements for a national convention.

But Sheriff insists that he is still the national chairman of the party.

He told newsmen that as far as the court judgment in his hand indicates that he remains the chairman, any other person claiming whatever position is illegal, and that the constitution of the PDP does not recognise any care taker committee in that case.

He was however stopped in his tracks by policemen keeping watch over the secretariat, who insisted that they were under instructions from the police hierarchy not to allow anyone into the premises.
