By Ogbolu George
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) , Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has said that he would cease being the chairman of the PDP after the national convention of the party.
Sherrif made this known when addressing a delegation of the South-West PDP at his Maitama, Abuja office.
”We have no argument with anybody. The law is certain. Nigerians have spoken. Some of the people you see, they actually don’t know where their villages are. They sit in Abuja and decide to make unnecessary statements.
”In the name of God, let’s re-build this party. Don’t divide the party. Let everybody unite in order to rebuild the party. I beg Fayose to respect PDP and the people of Nigeria. I beg him. Whatever you say today, posterity will judge you, so I beg him. Let’s tell Nigerians that our party is for all.
”I am not going to be chairman forever. I will leave office after the convention. We will do a credible convention. Whoever is against me should wait until after the convention,” he said.
Sheriff, also said he would send all the documents necessary for the re-opening of the PDP headquarters not later than Friday.
