Jonathan set to meet with Sheriff

The newly appointed national chairman of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ali Modu
Sheriff in a bid to stop rebellion of former
ministers and chairmen of the state chapters
of the party runs for help to the former
president Goodluck Jonathan.
Jonathan is set to meet with Sheriff and other
party chieftains.



An Australian negotiator, Dr Stephen Davis, has
claimed that the former governor was one of
the major sponsors and financiers of the Boko
Haram insurgents.
Sheriff's appointment has caused controversy
in the PDP with many members condemning
the choice due to his supposed sponsorship
of the sect.
On February 17, former ministers who
worked in Jonathan's government met in
Asokoro, where they pledged to leave the
party if Sheriff is not removed from his new
position.
However, PDP's national chairman denied
allegations, saying that he is neither founder
nor sponsor of Boko Haram sect.
A party official revealed that Sheriff has met
with ex-minister of transport, Chief Ojo
Maduekwe, and main chiefs of the party to
avert their defection to other parties.
"Sheriff has met with ex-National Secretary of
the party, Chief Ojo Maduekwe and other
leaders begging them not to leave the PDP.
He is worried that his emergence has caused
division within the party," he said.

"Again, he met with the Chairman of PDP
Ministers Forum, Tanimu Turaki(SAN) to
prevail on his members to shelve the Tuesday
session which might embarrass him as a
leader.
"As I am talking to you, both Governor
Olusegun Mimiko and National Secretary Prof.
Wale Oladipo, have been reaching out to most
leaders of the party to convince them to
accept Sheriff.
"Following a brick wall, Sheriff is expected to
meet ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on
Monday to wield his influence to save him
from the crisis at hand."
