House of Representatives member, Edward Pwajock says Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff is an undertaker brought to bury the party.
Pwajock also said that he warned against the appointment of Sheriff as chairman in 2016.
He made the comments on Wednesday, May 17, after dumping the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Governor Fayose has been quoted not once, not twice, as saying that if the Supreme Court affirms senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the chairman of PDP, he and others like him will have no option but to leave the PDP and join another party,” Pwajock said according to The Cable.
“Is that how to reconcile? Don’t forget that it was the same Fayose that invited Sheriff into the PDP. It was not APC that imposed Sheriff on PDP. It is a self-inflicted wound.
“Some of us had warned that bringing this man into the party is like bringing an undertaker to come and bury the party. Have we not been vindicated now?
“When former President Goodluck Jonathan convened a meeting to possibly broker a truce, you saw what happened, Sheriff and others walked out and that was the end of any such solution. The reality is that it is the party itself that is the cause of its own problems,” he added.
Pwajock’s defection was witnessed by Simon Lalong.
