A member of the Ahmed Makarfi’s faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said members loyal to Makarfi may decamp enmass to another political party should the National Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff win the legal contest at the Supreme Court.
This was disclosed by a former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives and an ally of Makarfi, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, while addressing party stakeholders at Obiri Ehinkirinki Hall, Okpala in Ngor Okpala local council area of Imo State, on Wednesday.
According to Ihedioha, “Let me tell you in clear terms that if Ali Modu Sheriff wins the legal battle at the Supreme Court, there is a ready political platform waiting for us. We will decamp en masse to the party and abandon PDP for Sheriff.”
Stressing that “Sheriff was brought into PDP to destroy the party,” the former Deputy Speaker claimed that “Sheriff has a hidden agenda and we will not allow him to actualize it in PDP.”
Ihedioha said, “there will be a PDP stakeholders meeting, comprising all former governors, serving and former lawmakers at the national and state levels, in Owerri on Sunday.”
