Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff has said he is willing to step down as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), if it is in the best interest of the party.
“I am willing to relinquish the position for the party to move forward into achieving its goals,” he said while speaking to journalists in Abuja.
Daily Post report that, Sheriff stated that the victory at the court was for all PDP members, including those belonging to the Makarfi faction.
He disclosed that he would start consulting every stakeholder in the party, including the Governors, National Assembly and BOT members in order to organize a unified National convention.
He expressed hope that all aggrieved members will come back to the party.
He, however, added that “all the State Congresses held prior to the Port Harcourt convention stands. Therefore, existing State Executives remain intact”.
Sheriff said he already spoke to chairman of PDP reconciliatory committee, Governor Seriake Dickson, the Deputy, Senator Ibrahim Mantu as well as the BOT Chairman of PDP in a move to reconcile all aggrieved members as soon as possible.
“A timetable for that will be released as soon all consultations are concluded,” he assured.
Sheriff further refuted the statement credited to him that he would deal with Governors Nyesom Wike and Ayo Fayose.
In attendance at the press conference were Senators Hope Uzodinma and Chris Uba, among others.
