PDP Governors causing party problems

Hope Uzodinma

Senator representing Imo West in the National Assembly, Hope Uzodinma who is also a member of Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that governors are causing huge problems in the party.

The lawmaker said this in an interview with the New Telegraph, where he recalled that it was the PDP governors that brought Ali Modu Sheriff in the first place.

He said, “Remember it was the PDP governors that brought Ali Modu Sheriff in the first place to make him chairman.”

He noted that the party’s BoT and some stakeholders were not comfortable with the arrangement but the governors insisted and eventually convinced the other organs of the party.

He added, “Sheriff now came on board and sold himself to the stakeholders and we saw that he has capacity, so when the chairmanship was zoned to the North-East, they unanimously endorsed him as their candidate for ratification by the national convention. There was no other candidate from his zone.

“He was the consensus candidate of the North-East where the chairmanship was zoned to. Incredibly, the same governors, who brought and endorsed Sheriff in the first place, now decided to kick against his chairmanship.

“So, I don’t know what really happened or when the marriage between the governors and Sheriff crashed or what the problem is, but whichever way you look at it, it will not be out of place for anybody to say that the governors are a problem in the part.” he concluded.
