Sheriff kicks, says PDP Congress a charade


Embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has opposed the National Convention of the party that was held on Saturday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Sheriff said the Convention, which he had earlier announced postponed, stood cancelled.

He said what transpired at the Sharks Stadium in Port Harcourt after he pronounced the Convention cancelled was a charade.
He also described it as illegal.

Sheriff had on Saturday pronounced the Convention postponed, alluding to the court judgements directing that it should not hold.

He said the delegates should return home.

But after the pronouncement, the Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, declared the Congress open.

At the Congress, it was agreed that a former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, should head an interim committee to lead the party.

Makarfi is to be assisted by six other members.

The team was given 90 days within which to conduct an acceptable National Convention.
