PDP Not a Training Ground For Thugs, Sheriff tells Wike, Fayose

The national chairman of the opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has described Rivers and Ekiti States governors as thugs warning them that the party is not a training ground for them.

Sheriff who stated this in Abuja while briefing newsmen shortly after he was confirmed the authentic national chairman of the party vowed to tame the excesses of the governors.

It will be recalled that there have leadership crisis in the PSP since the Port Hacourt convention which produced Senator Markafi as the caretaker committee chairman of the party.

But in a landslide judgment which may address the leadership crisis bedeviling the party, the appeal court sitting in Port Hacourt, Rivers State declared Sheriff as the authentic chairman of the party and warned Markafi to stop parading himself as the chairman of the party.

Reacting to the judgment, Sheriff, a two time Senator and former governor of Borno State promised to restructure the party to ensure that people with unstable character will not grow through the ranks of the party to a position of responsibility.

According to him,  "I will engineer a restructuring of the PDP such that characters like Wike and Fayose cannot find a way through to attain any position of prominence in our party in the future. They have brought shame and agony through the application of their crude and godless politics which is at variance with the principles upon which our founding fathers built our great party.

We must find a way to sieve things so that only men of character and integrity can come through for positions of responsibility at all levels of our political engagement in the country. We must urgently steer the ship of PDP clear of the path of infamy which Wike and Fayose has brought our party, making Nigerians to mistaken PDP as a training ground for thugs. That is the urgent task we have.

We cannot continue to advertise thug brand and expect Nigerians to take us seriously".
