Ahead of the National Convention of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), a political analyst and a Chieftain of the Party, Ebubeagu Ekenulo, has called on the acting National Chairman of the Party, Ali Modu Sheriff to discontinue his ambition of becoming the substantive Chairman to save the party from disintegration. Ebubeagu, who made the call while addressing newsmen in Owerri, the Imo State capital, said that it became imperative for the embattled acting National Chairman to jettison his ambition, following his inability to conduct credible congresses by encouraging internal democracy devoid of impunity and imposition.
According to him, “the best thing that can happen to the PDP now is for Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff to discontinue and stop his jaundiced and inordinate ambition of becoming the substantive national chairman of PDP following his inability to conduct credible congresses, enshrine internal democracy and shun impunity and imposition. “Ali-Modu Sheriff has proven to be the crown prince of impunity. The acting National Chairman who was recently sacked by the Prof Jerry Gana led concerned stakeholders of the PDP and PDP Elders Forum has woefully failed to reunite the party instead his actions and behaviours have deepened and worsened the crisis in the PDP”.
The embittered activist, continued that “Senator Sheriff as the acting National Chairman of PDP in the past few months has only succeeded in crowning corruption, impunity and imposition as a way of life in the party instead of taking bold steps to tackle these vices and rejuvenate the party ahead of 2019.
