The factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff, has declared PDP governorship primaries held in Edo State on Monday by the Ahmed Makarfi faction as “illegal and a contraption of an illegal caretaker Committee.”
He also urged members of the party nationwide especially, in Edo State, to disregard it.
In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, which was co signed by the factional National Secretary, Wale Oladipo, Mr. Sheriff urged INEC not to give legitimacy to what happened in Edo, saying his faction would conduct a proper primary in the state.
Also in another statement, the Sheriff faction released a schedule of fresh congress in Edo State to run from June 23 to June 29 with the inauguration of Congress Committee scheduled for Thursday.
He also released another statement on Tuesday warning all state chairmen and officers of the party against “meeting or having anything with the illegal Caretaker committee and warned that anybody dealing with them is on his own.”
