Do Not Bring “Boko Haram” Attitude to PDP – Makarfi Warns Sheriff

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has cautioned the embattled former chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, not to re-enact what led to the emergence of Boko Haram.

Makarfi’s comments came after his supporters and those of Sheriff clashed at the party’s national secretariat. He spoke after the meeting of the party’s governors, Board of Trustees (BoT), National Assembly Caucus and other PDP stakeholders. Makarfi said: “We reviewed all that have been going on in the party, especially since Monday.

You are all witnesses to the thuggery that took place. “Actually, those who remember how Boko Haram was born, that is how it started. How thugs were brought into Abuja and some people forced themselves into the secretariat, in the process documents and some property belonging to be party cannot be accounted for. “This cannot be without some supports from some quarters, definitely not from the PDP.
“We have had the former chairman recorded saying that he was going to go beyond the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to gain access into the secretariat.

We don’t know what he means be beyond the IG but all of you are sensible enough to decide who is beyond IG could actually mean.” Also speaking, the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, denied ever begging Sheriff to become chairman of the party. He said: “Without doubt, I did not beg him but I supported his coming.

And when you act within ambits of time the information you have at a given time, I am not someone that will say I did not support Sheriff. But when you want to marry a woman, on the wedding day, they tell you that the woman has HIV, will you still remain in the marriage? I am out of it.”
