By Ogbolu George
The national chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has laid out his plans to restructure PDP in such a way that would not give room to people like Gov Wike of Rivers State and Gov Fayose of Ekito State to thrive.
Sheriff made the statement while addressing newsmen shortly an appeal court upheld his position as the national chairman of the PDP. A ruling which did not go down well with Ahmed Markarfi’s camp.
“I will engineer a restructuring of PDP such that characters like Wike and Fayose cannot find a way through to attain any position of prominence in our party in the future,” Sheriff told newsmen.
“They have brought shame and agony through the application of their crude and godless politics which is at variance with the principles upon which our founding fathers built our great party.
“We must find a way to sieve things so that only men of character and integrity can come through for positions of responsibility at all levels of our political engagement in the country.
“We must urgently steer the ship of PDP clear of the path of infamy which Wike and Fayose has brought our party, making Nigerians to mistaken PDP as a training ground for thugs. That is the urgent task we have. We cannot continue to advertise thug brand and expect Nigerians to take us seriously.”
