Makarfi Blasts Ali Modu Sheriff Again, Says He Has Selfish Ambitions


​The Ahmed Makarfi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has alleged that the party’s national chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, is holding the party to ransom, because he wants to use the PDP platform to contest for president in the 2019 general elections.

Makarfi faction made the allegation in reaction to Sheriff’s statement on Monday, March 20, that PDP’s presidential ticket will be zoned to the North, The Punch reports. The faction said:“Yesterday (Monday), while addressing newsmen, as he continues to illegally occupy our Party Secretariat with the backings of the APC Government, the former Borno State Governor clearly stated that he’s interested in contesting the 2019 Presidential Elections using the platform of our Party, the PDP.

“We said it earlier, but most non Party members as well as some members of the Party who could not see beyond the curtains didn’t believe it, but we were sure that Senator Sheriff was holding the Party to ransom because he wanted to hijack the Party and use it for his selfish interest.” It said Sheriff’s statement was evident that his fight for the soul of the PDP was toachieve a set objective which he has been working towards since January 2016 when he was appointed to complete the tenure of Bamanga Tukur and Adamu Muazu who resigned having led the Party to electoral failure in 2015.
