PDP'S NEW CHAIRMAN: I won’t work with those behind crisis in PDP

Ali Modu Sheriff

The national chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Sheriff, on Thursday said he would take the party’s campaign to grassroots but vowed not to work with those causing crisis in the party.

    Mr. Sheriff stated this when a delegation of the Arewa Social Media Forum led by Yusuf Dingyadi paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Thursday.

   He said the crisis in the party was man-made and self-inflicted, adding that he would ensure the return of the party to the grassroots to ensure viability ahead of 2019 elections.

   “We have the mandate of the party members and leaders to reposition the party and we will not work with anyone who will create crisis or violence in the party, no matter their positions.

   “The party has suffered enough for its mistakes, and members and indeed Nigerians are looking forward toward a repositioned PDP,” he said.

  He said PDP lost the presidential election to the APC due to injustice and frustration of members by some leaders in the party.

  Earlier, Mr. Dingyadi said youths had been neglected for long in the northern part of the country.
