Sheriff's Men Say They Are Still PDP Members
The Supreme Court judgement that declared Ahmed Makarfi as the authentic Chairman of PDP will not make Ali Modu Sheriff’s men leave the party.
Deputy National Vice Chairman of the defunct Sheriff faction of the PDP, Dr Cairo Ojouigboh, made this clear on Sunday in Warri.
This was shortly after meeting with some members who were loyal to the former Chairman of the party.
While they await the receipt of the Supreme Court judgement for their lawyers to study and advise appropriately, they will not abandon the party.
“For now, we are still members of the party and we will be ready to work for the success of PDP in future elections.
“We are PDP members and faithful ones. We are awaiting the written judgement and wait for the advice of our lawyers,” he said.
Ojouigboh urged the party members in Delta to return to the grassroots and woo people to strengthen the party while they await directive from the former executive of the party.
On his part, the Delta factional chairman of the party, Mr Austin Ogbabunor, urged the former leadership of the party to note the challenges of the party in the state and integrate them into the party.
Ogbabunor, however, said that they would not hesitate to form their own party should the PDP in Delta refuse to absorb them.
