The Ali Modu Sheriff camp of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has insisted that only the camp is allowed by law to field a candidate for the upcoming governorship election in Edo State. The group during the week gave the party’s governorship ticket to Mr. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen, thereby challenging the candidature of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who was ratified by the rival Ahmed Makarfi – led caretaker Committee.

At a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday, a key member of the Sheriff group, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, insisted that Sheriff remained the only recognized National Chairman of the PDP. “We have a point blank court judgment affirming Sheriff as the recognized PDP Chairman that is allowed to submit names of Governorship candidates for the Edo and Ondo States governorship elections, “Ojougboh said.

He dismissed calls by the Makarfi camp for Sheriff’s arrest by the security agencies, saying if there is anyone to be arrested at all, it should be Makarfi and his group members.
