PDP To Critics: Stop Labelling Ali Modu Sheriff Boko Haram Sponsor

PDPFollowing the condemnation in some quarters of the emergence of former Borno State governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the new National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tues¬day, the leadership of the party yesterday warned against labelling him as Boko Haram sponsor.
The National Audi¬tor of the party, Alhaji Adewole Adeyanju, in a statement challenged anybody with concrete evidence on Sheriff’s sponsorship of the terrorist sect to speak up or stop spreading such unfounded rumours.
He added that the alle¬gation was a plot to dis¬credit PDP before Nigeri¬ans and the international community.
Mr. Adeyanju, therefore, appealed to all well-meaning Nigerians and the international community to ignore the new antics of the enemies who he claimed are bent on scuttling the party’s chances of taking over from the All Progressives Congress-led federal government in 2019.
“We are very much aware that some elements are jittery over PDP’s decision to pick him as its national chairman and the only way out for them is to label him as Boko Haram sponsor”, the national auditor said.
