The National Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party may have settled for Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the next chairman of the party…But the only spanner in the works for him is the popular tag with Boko Haram and corruption tag..’his PAST may BE the ONLY problem’.we were told.
The former governor of Borno State and a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, were drafted into the race by the members of the party’s National Caucus in Abuja at their meeting which ended in the early hours of Tuesday in Abuja.
The meeting was held at Ondo Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro.
It was attended by governors of the party and others.
Members of the Board of Trustees of the party are currently meeting to discuss to either reject or accept the former governor as the party’s chairman.
Our correspondent gathered that at the end of the BoT meeting, members of the National Executive would meet.
The former governor was said to have been chosen because of his experience.
“He (Sheriff) has money. He is fearless and he has the capacity to galvanise the north for the PDP”
