PDP Governors Are Not Thieves – Makarfi Replies Sheriff
The Ahmed Makarfi’s faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said the governors on the platform of the party are not thieves.
Makarfi’s faction made the declaration while reacting to statement credited to the party’s National Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, saying he does not need finances from the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayodele Fayose to run the party.
Reacting to Sheriff’s comment, the Makarfi’s faction in a statement by its spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, said it was insulting for the camp of the National Chairman to say that the party would not accept stolen money from any of the governors.
Adeyeye stated that Sheriff’s camp had no locus to speak in the capacity of deputy national chairman of the PDP.
“He is an interloper and an impostor and, as such, any action or statement made by Ojugboh and other self-appointed members of the Sheriff group is illegal, null and void and should be disregarded by all loyal supporters and members of the PDP,” Adeyeye said.
He said that both governors Ayodele Fayose and Nyesom Wike of Ekiti and Rivers states respectively, and other PDP governors ‘are men of integrity’.
“Our governors are responsible and trusted party men that are working tirelessly in their various states to deliver the needed dividends of democracy.
“The people of Rivers State and Ekiti State can testify to the wonderful achievements of our governors in their states and other states governed by the PDP,” he added.
