PDP Offers 'Amnesty' to Sheriff, Cairo, Others

PDP Offers 'Amnesty' to Sheriff, Cairo, Others

Twenty-four hours after the Supreme Court sacked Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), his camp said they have received the judgement with shock.

This is against the backdrop of Wednesday's court verdict that bestowed on Makarfi, rather than Sheriff, the authentic leader of the party.

NAIJ.com learnt that the zoning decision was reached as the party announced that its national convention would take place in October this year.

In a show of good faith, Sheriff has released a statement through spokesperson of the party's National Caretaker Committee, Dayo Adeyeye, saying that the court judgement should serve as a fresh start for the party and not another reason to stay divided.

I am therefore concerned about the future of our party in the hands of some of those who are known to have pending criminal cases bordering fraud, treasury looting and dishonesty with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

"It is general amnesty for all".




"We want to appeal to everybody, those who have cases in courts, to withdraw them in the interest of the party". People are looking for alternative and now the Supreme Court has restored their hope. "APC will begin to see virile opposition henceforth".

Sheriff who also rejected the amnesty offered him and his followers by the Markafi-led PDP maintained that he was rather anxious about the future of the party, which he said is now in the hands of some persons known to have criminal cases bordering on fraud, treasury looting and dishonesty pending before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Sheriff, who spoke through Ojougboh, said, "He said that he was going to grant us amnesty?"

"The "no victor, no vanquished" that we said was a mere political slogan".

"I never imagined myself being in the same party with impostors", he said.
