The House of Reps minority leader, Leo Ogor has debunked claims that most People Democratic Party (PDP) members in the Green Chambers support the Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.

Sheriff was declared as the chairman of the PDP by a High Court in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state.

According to Ogor, a large number of PDP Reps are solidly behind the factional chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.

This is coming after a PDP member in the House, Ehiozuwa Agbonayinma told reporters that all the party members are in support of Sheriff.

Speaking further, Ogor said “Let Agbonayinma give you ten names of lawmakers that are with Sheriff, then I’ll buy into that.

“He sits in meetings with us, there is no way he can mention Sheriffs name in that meeting.”

“If out of over 140 members, you have two or three people supporting Sheriff, you know that is very insignificant and inconsequential,” the minority leader added.

The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has led many of its members to decamp to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
