Feb 20, 2017 – Goodluck Jonathan Endorses Alleged Boko Haram Sponsor Modu Sheriff As PDP National Chairman

Former President Jonathan has endorsed Alimodu Sheriff as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

But the party’s key stakeholders, including governors, the Board of Trustees members, National Assembly Caucus and former ministers have passed a vote of confidence in the Ahmed Makarfi led Caretaker Committee.

The endorsement by Jonathan came amid protests by the Makarfi led Caretaker Committee and other critical organs of the party against the Appeal Court’s ruling that affirmed Sheriff’s position as chairman.

While receiving Sheriff and members of his team at his Maitama, Abuja, residence on Monday, Jonathan who kept addressing Sheriff as “my chairman,” said there are no factions in the party.

Speaking after a closed door meeting with Sheriff and his team, Jonathan said,

“We are not factionalised. We are one. There are bound to be differences in politics. We cannot run away from that.

“It is the way we resolve these differences is what makes us human beings and that is what makes us leaders. I have met with Sheriff. And I have met with others. I will still meet with others, so that we will be able to do what is expected of us as a political party.”
