PDP to determine Sheriff's tenure Monday

By The Citizen

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Seccretary, Professor Wale Oladipo has said the tenure of the new chairman, Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff will be determined by the National Executive Committee (NEC) at their meeting slated for Monday.

Modu-Sheriff was two weeks ago given initial three months to revive the party by statutory organs of the party but the NEC has not yet ratified the arrangement.

Fielding questions from journalists on Thursday in Abuja on the development in the party and the activities of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) in recent time, Prof Oladipo declared that “all is now well with our party and all hands are on the deck to see that our party regains its lost glory.

“Now, we have a substantive national chairman in place from the North-East to complete the tenure of Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, though some aggrieved members of the party kicked against his emergence, I can say categorically that through the help of the various statutory organs of the party,we have been able to come that, the various organs will be meeting from this Sunday and on Monday  the National  Executive Committee  will meet  to take a definite stand on the tenure issue”. - Daily Trust.
