Members of the “PDP Rescue Group”, a faction of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have continued to kick against the appointment of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s national chairman.
The Chairman of the PDP Rescue Group, Ambassador Wilberforce Juta, who had sought the party’s chairmanship position, described the emergence of Senator Sheriff as an imposition by some persons in the party.
He told a press conference in Abuja on Sunday that the current chairman lacked the integrity that the PDP needed at this time.
The group, therefore, called on the new chairman to resign, as he was never at any time nominated by the northeast wing of the party for the race.
The PDP had on February 16 appointed Senator Sheriff the party’s new national chairman, at the meeting of the National Executive Committee held at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
