Ali Modu Sheriff, the defeated national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has opened up on his absence at the party’s meetings held on Monday and Tuesday.
Modu-Sheriff said in a statement issued last night that he did not attend the meetings because he was not invited.
Sheriff, who added that he was out of the country when the meetings took place, said he and his loyalists would collaborate with global anti-corruption agencies to ensure that corrupt party members were brought to book.
In a statement by his spokesman, Bernard Mikko, the former Borno governor called on his supporters to remain in PDP until it was returned to the grassroots.
“We will collaborate with global anti-corruption networks to bring all corrupt politicians in Nigeria to book, including PDP members having criminal cases bothering on dishonesty and malfeasance.
“Never again will corrupt politicians use the platform of our major political institutions to stardom. The party is for all and no one’s enterprise as government is conceived as an administrative state where dishonest politicians bask in democratic corruption,” he said.
The statement added that Sheriff would address a world press conference “at the appropriate time.”
