Sheriff accuses Obi, Makrafi of working for APC

Sheriff accuses Obi, Makrafi of working for APC


The embattled factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff, Friday, accused the Chairman of the PDP caretaker committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi and Secretary of the committee, Senator Ben Obi of working for a prominent chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking at a media briefing in Abuja, Sheriff said the unnamed APC chieftain had been sponsoring Makarfi and Obi, adding that the duo had been paying secret visits to the said APC chieftain.

The factional chairman insisted that he remained the authentic leader of the opposition party.

He said, “If there are people in the PDP working for the APC, it’s Makarfi and Obi. Makarfi should not force me to reveal details that I should not reveal under normal circumstances.

“Makarfi and Obi have gone to visit this APC chieftain in his house twice and this particular individual is still in the APC. It would have been better if the man had left the APC to join the PDP.

“They are reserving the 2019 presidential ticket of the PDP for this individual who has been funding their activities. If Makarfi continues to attack my person, I will be forced to reveal further details of their alliance.

“Everybody in Nigeria knows this particular APC chieftain who wants to contest for president in 2019 on the platform of the PDP. So, Makarfi should just shut up”.

Sheriff had earlier in the day, received a delegation of PDP chieftains from Plateau State who came to declare support for his leadership.

The leader of the delegation, Dr. Haruna Dabin said the delegation decided to support Sheriff because he was the only one that can stop the culture of impunity in the PDP.

Dabin said, “We have decided to stand with Sheriff on the path of truth and the rule of law. We are confident in his ability to heal the wounds in our party”.
