Chief Femi Fani Kayode (FFK), a former minister of aviation and the former Director President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organization, said that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, a factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will not be supported because he is an agent of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sheriff was recent declared the authentic chairman of the PDP in a recent Appeal Court judgment in Port Harcourt.
FFK however noted that Sheriff has been working with the APC to destroy the PDP.
“This is a man whose fundamental purpose and ambition in life is to sell the PDP down the river and to help the ruling APC and the Buhari government to destroy us and win the presidential election in 2019,” FFK stated.
Sometime last year, Senator Sheriff was appointed as the acting chairman of the PDP. He was however removed three (3) months after he took over PDP leadership, replacing him with an interim leadership (National Caretaker Committee) headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, a former governor of Kaduna State.
FFK and others, including the PDP governors stood by the Makarfi-led PDP National Caretaker Committee, noting that they will not support Senator Sheriff even if he eventually emerges as the Chairman of the party at the Supreme Court.
“Sheriff is the Angel of Death to the PDP. He is worse than the bubonic plague: not only is he a curse to our party but he is also an affliction to our nation,” FFK said.
“I stand with Ahmed Makarfi and our Caretaker Committee.” He added.
“I read his insulting comments about [Governor Ayo] Fayose and [Governor Nyesom] Wike and I laughed. Are these not the very same people that brought him in the first place and convinced others in the PDP Governor’s Forum to support him?” FFK asked
