PDP Not Interested In Wike And Fayose’s Stolen Money–Ali Modu Sheriff


The embattled factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)  Ali Modu Sheriff has said that the party is not interested in being funded through funds stolen by governors such as the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and his counterpart from Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose.

Ali Modu Sheriff had earlier threatened that the PDP under his watch will have nothing to do with former President Jonathan and his cohorts.

Recall that Sheriff and members of his team had on Thursday in Abuja, walked out of a reconciliatory meeting called by Jonathan over disagreements on how the meeting should be conducted.

Sheriff had insisted that he would preside over the meeting, but Wike and Fayose disagreed, saying Jonathan should preside since it was a reconciliatory and not a party meeting.

Sheriff, who spoke through his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, on Saturday night, said that the party was not ready to collect money from the governors to fund the party, saying the former ruling party would not collect what he called “stolen money from the governors.”

Ojougboh said, “We are moving on with the determination to reposition the party. We are not interested in the funding of the party from the governors. They are free to leave if they want to, especially Wike and Fayose.”

“We are also not interested in their money. The party belongs to the people, they will finance it. So, if the governors want to withhold money from the party, they are free. We don’t receive stolen money. They have not been funding us and we are surviving.”

He said the party was already planning a nationwide campaign, adding that they were already in the South-East where he said the campaign would start.

“We are starting with Anambra, Imo, Ebonyi, Enugu and Abia states, and then we will move to Cross River State. The party belongs to the people and not to governors who will want to steal people’s money,” he added.
