Sacked chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has said that he was not invited to the party’s caucus meeting on Monday at the PDP’s National Secretariat.
Sheriff, who reacted on Tuesday to media reports that he was absent at the PDP Caucus meeting, appealed to members of his camp not to decamp to other parties.
Through the former spokesmen of his National Working Committee (NWC), Bernard Mikko, Senator Sheriff said that he will address a press conference on the way forward, after studying the Supreme Court judgment.
He said: “Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was neither in the country nor invited to the assemblage at Wadata Plaza yesterday evening.
“However, he will address a world press conference to throw light on the way forward after we have received and studied the full judgement of the Supreme Court and analysed its import on our democracy. We, therefore, appeal to all our loyal supporters nationwide not to defect as we are still committed to bringing the party back to the grassroots.
“We assure them that we will not only give them a voice, but they will also be heard. We will collaborate with global anti-corruption networks to bring all corrupt politicians in Nigeria to book, including PDP members having criminal cases bothering on dishonesty and malfeasance,” he said.
