Former ministers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have joined the list of those rejecting former Borno State governor, Ali Modu Sheriff, as the Chairman of Nigeria’s front line opposition party.
The ministers made the call during a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
The meeting is sequel to series of controversies that have trailed the emergence of the new PDP National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, who resumed office on Monday.
PDP’s Board of Trustees (BoT) had earlier joined the group of those rejecting the appointment of Senator Sheriff as the party’s National Chairman, saying that he was not a suitable leader for the party.
The acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s BoT, Senator Walid Jubril, maintained that the board would meet to provide a viable solution to the leadership crisis.
