Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) on Monday rose from a marathon meeting with a declaration that Ali Modu Sheriff is not a suitable candidate for the position of party chairman.
The Acting chairman of the BoT, Senator Walid Jibrin, who presided over the meeting, held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, made the declaration on behalf of the trustees.
According to him, as the conscience of the PDP, the BoT was in the best position to know the right candidate for the position, adding that the trustees were still consulting with other organs of the party, with the view to easing Sheriff out.
“We are going to propose viable solution to this problem after we must have consulted with other organs and relevant stakeholders in the party,” Jibrin said.
He declined further comments on the matter.
Present at the meeting were – Prof. Jerry Gana, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, Alhaji Shuabu Oyedokun, Air Commodore Dan Suleiman, Senator Stella Omu, Senator Jonah Jang, Mrs. Josephine Anenih, Senator Adolphus Wabara, Abdullahi Kure and Maina Waziri, among others.
Although Moro recently blamed the former Immigration boss for the incidents, those loyal to Parradang had earlier traced the tragedy to Moro and his alleged business partners.
