The President of Concerned Nigerian Network in Diaspora, Comrade James Erebuoye, has called for patience and understanding with Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, the embattled factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nigeria.
A press release from the group said Erebuoye was saddened by the conflicting court judgments which have tended to derail the PDP as a Party, but urged the warring factions in the party to amicably settle their differences
“This is not the time for internal bickering for positions and power, the leadership of the PDP should use this period for sober reflections.
“This period of postponement by one year should be properly utilised to bring about a lasting peace to the PDP and save the masses.
“The Sheriff I know as two-time Governor and three time senator is a bridge builder, man of peace and philanthropists; people should stop portraying him in bad light because that is not his nature.
” If you cast your mind back, you will discover that Sheriff has the wherewithal to take the PDP back to power if given the opportunity”, it said.
Erebuoye disclosed that whatever is the cause of disagreement between Sheriff and his colleagues in the PDP should be treated as a “family affair”.
Meanwhile, the Niger Delta Renaissance Organisation (NDRO) has condemned the call for the arrest of Sheriff by the Attorney-General of Borno State, Hon. Kaka Shehu Lawan, describing it as an act of blackmail.
