I was not invited to PDP Caucus meeting - Sheriff




Sacked chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has said that he was not invited to the party’s caucus meeting on Monday at the PDP’s National Secretariat.

Sheriff, who reacted on Tuesday to media reports that he was absent at the PDP Caucus meeting, ap­pealed to members of his camp not to decamp to oth­er parties.

Through the former spokesmen of his Nation­al Working Committee (NWC), Bernard Mikko, Senator Sheriff said that he will address a press confer­ence on the way forward, after studying the Supreme Court judgment.

He said: “Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was neither in the country nor invited to the assemblage at Wadata Plaza yesterday evening.

“However, he will ad­dress a world press confer­ence to throw light on the way forward after we have received and studied the full judgement of the Supreme Court and analysed its im­port on our democracy. We, therefore, appeal to all our loyal supporters nationwide not to defect as we are still committed to bringing the party back to the grassroots.

“We assure them that we will not only give them a voice, but they will also be heard. We will collaborate with global anti-corruption networks to bring all cor­rupt politicians in Nigeria to book, including PDP members having criminal cases bothering on dishon­esty and malfeasance,” he said.
