Ali Modu Sheriff led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) says he would not be bound by the decision of another faction of the party to go ahead with the planned national convention holding in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Senator Sheriff while addressing the newsmen in Abuja said the entire process has been hijacked by a few people who are working against the interest of the majority.
“Whatever they do, it is illegal and for me, it is not acceptable.
“We will continue… I will not recognise any of these gathering. I will pursue the rule of law until justice is done,” he told reporters in Abuja on Tuesday.
Senator sheriff insisted that the PDP was for Nigerians and must not be hijacked by one person.
He reiterated his readiness to give up the chairmanship, if people are given free will to choose who they want
“I am ready today, tomorrow, if justice would be done. If elections are conducted in Abuja with people allowed to choose who they want as leaders.
“I will be prepared to hand over to that person. But unless and until we do that, I have a right and I have been elected by the NEC [National Executive Committee] for a specific period of time which will not finish until 2018.
