Ali Modu Sheriff, the former National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has pledged commitment and loyalty to goals and principles of the party under Ahmed Makarfi’s leadership.
In a statement by his spokesman, Bernard Mikko, Sheriff said: “We hope the current spate of threats and outright acts of intimidation will cease so that millions of our party members would not start seeking ‘alternate platforms’ to secure their political future.
“While remaining loyal and committed to the ideals and goals of the PDP, we also owe it a duty to preserve our personal honour and protect the political interest of millions of PDP members nationwide, who are looking up to us for leadership. We appeal to our loyal members and supporters to remain calm and refrain from further legal action of any sort.
“We, therefore, appeal to true lovers of democracy, the civil society and the media to join hands with us to ensure that all forms of impunity, lawlessness and blind ambition are controlled and dispensed with, he added.
