PDP national secretariat reopens


THE Appeal Court proclaimed, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Sen. Ali-Modu Sheriff, re-opened the party’s national secretariat, Wadata Plaza on Thursday.

Sheriff, arrived the party secretariat at about 6 p.m, informed newsmen that he was at the premises to inspect the level of repairs to be done at the secretariat.

It should be noted that the party’s secretariat had been under lock and key since May, 2016 after its National Convention held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

while opening the secretariat the chairman said, ‎“We are here at the National Secretariat this evening to access the place so that we can resume either Monday or Tuesday. We will go round to access the kind of repairs to be done.

“We will get our painters and cleaners over the weekend to work on it, and while they are doing so, we will continue with our consultations just like we have been doing since the judgment was delivered,” he said.

Sheriff, had earlier announced that the National Secretariat will be opened before Friday, after the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt has proclaimed him the authentic PDP Chairman.

Accompanying him to the opening, includes the Acting Deputy National Chairman, Dr Cairo Ojougboh, National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo, National Auditor, Alhaji Adeyanju, Sen. Buruji Kashamu, and Alhaji Ahmed Gulak among others.

It should also be noted that, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the factional Publicity Secretary, PDP National Caretaker Committee has described Sheriff’s action as illegal.

“As far as we are concerned, the forceful entry of Ali Modu-Sheriff and his team into the party secretariat is illegal and most unwelcomed. “We say this because the keys to the secretariat are with the Board of Trustees and we’ve checked with them, and can confirm that the keys have not been handed over to Sheriff or any of his followers.

“The implication of this is that he broke into the secretariat which is a criminal offence. “We also expected that Sheriff should have waited for the conclusion of the Appeal we filed at the Supreme Court before he forced himself in just like we held on when we got court judgment favouring us last year.’’ He stated.
