National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, call on all PDP loyalists across the country to stop the smear campaigns and address issues in their collective quest to find a lasting solution to the crisis that has beset the party.
This call becomes necessary in the face of recent reports planted in some sections of the media, alluding that Senator Buruji Kashamu is a godfather to National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
In a statement released through his Media Adviser Inuwa Bwala:
Sherrif stated While it remains obvious that the said report was part of the mischief and orchestrated smear campaigns embarked upon by some people, against the National Chairman, we wish to state for the avoidance of doubt that, he has no godfather in politics and Senator Buruji Kashamu could not be have been one.
It is becoming clearer that, the PDP National Chairman’s critics have run out of ideas on how to achieve their selfish agenda, hence the resort to blackmail and blatant falsehood in order to distract Sheriff from manifesting his capacity to reposition the PDP.
We must state that it was most uncharitable for anybody to imply that Senator Kashamu , who, like every stakeholder in the PDP, is highly respected, and who makes inputs towards the progress of the PDP, is senator Sheriff’s godfather, as nothing could be further from the truth.
As members of the same party, and as people who believe in the progress of the PDP, there exists mutual understanding between the National Chairman and all stakeholders who identify with his cause in this challenging period, including Senator Buruji Kashamu.
With a very long history of political activities behind him, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has an intimidating political credential and does not need a godfather to survive, as such, those bandying such mischief can neither succeed in distracting him from moving forward, nay pitch him against party members who identify with him.
