Jonathan didn’t advise Sheriff to resign as chairman – PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed a media report claiming that Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff was advised by former president Goodluck Jonathan to resign as the National chairman of the party.
The acting National Publicity Secretary to the Sheriff faction, Mr. Bernard Mikko, stated this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
The statement said the issue of resignation as the political solution has neither been discussed nor put up for consideration with former President and other stakeholders as reported in some media.
“As a law abiding citizen, Sheriff has been urging all stakeholders to make themselves available and offer advice on how to conduct the party’s national convention as soon as possible,” it added.
The stakeholders, according to the statement, include PDP governors; national and state assembly members and Board of Trustees (BoT) members.
