A major step to restore the strength of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – the choice of an acting National Chairman – was off the target yesterday. The main opposition party sank deeper into crisis after a section of its leadership picked former Borno State Governor Ali Modu Sheriff for the top job.

Governors elected on the platform of the party and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) endorsed Sheriff’s candidacy for the job, which former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman Nuhu Ribadu turned down.

The Governors and NWC members okayed Sheriff, but the Board of Trustees (BoT), Chairmen of state chapters, Senators from the South-South and South-east – where the party has most of its Senators – and members of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s cabinet, rejected Sheriff’s choice.
