As crisis controversies continue to trail the emergence Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the National Chairman of the People Democratic Party (PDP), the Arewa PDP Awake group has rejected him as the party’s leader, describing his emergence as irrational.
This was contained in a statement signed by Hon. Danlami Kawule,? Dr. Chindo Mohammed and Malam Mohammed Yusuf, the National Coordinator, National Secretary and the National Publicity Secretary of the group, in Bauchi State on Friday.
According to the group, it was rejecting Sheriff as PDP chairman because the party is yet to recover from the disastrous outing of the last general election.
“We at Arewa PDP Awake totally reject Senator Modu Sheriff as PDP National Chairman and we urge all stakeholders in the party to urgently take action in order to save the party from disintegration.
“We wish to use this medium to make our position clear that, in the event Senator Sheriff remains the PDP National Chairman, we have no other option than to go back to our supporters to chart a new course for our political future in the interest of unity ,stability and progress of our country,” said Arewa Awake.
The PDP interest group also observed that the party does not need people like Sheriff as leaders “because of his  past record, which speaks volumes of allegations of complicity of all kinds.  At the moment PDP need person with integrity who is focused ?and result-oriented.”
