The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Governors Forum have defended the choice of Ali Modu Sheriff as its chairman. The party said it was confident Sheriff would re-position the party ahead of the “battle ahead”.
“Sheriff is coming on the job with immense wealth of experience and will, no doubt, use his vast network to rebuild the party.
“He will restore members’ confidence and act as a counterforce to the many antics of the present APC regime,” the governors said.
The governors urged the national chairman to avoid all diversionary tactics and work toward uniting all aggrieved members and fashion out modalities to woo new party faithful.
“The forum is solidly behind you and will deploy its support to ensure that the shared vision for our party is realised as we prepare for 2019.”
