Ali Modu Sheriff, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has  advised Dayo Adeyeye to stop parading himself as spokesman of the party.

Adeyeye, the Publicity Secretary of the party’s factional National Caretaker Committee, was urged to desist from parading himself as spokesman of the PDP.

In a statement released by acting Publicity Secretary, Benard Mikko, on Sunday in Abuja, Sheriff said Adeyeye could not speak for the PDP or use its logo and franchise without the authority and permission of the national leadership of the party.

He condemned what he described as “desperation of Adeyeye”, at a time the efforts of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee of the party under the chairmanship of Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state was ongoing.

We appeal to all party faithful, loyal party members and strategic stakeholders to remain calm and committed to the PDP.

They should continue to have faith in the Peace and Reconciliation report as the panacea for a united and cohesive party waiting for your mandate to tackle the developmental deficits and other adverse conditions we now face in Nigeria,” Sheriff said.

In a quick reply, Adeyeye, in a statement issued on behalf of the  illegal National Caretaker Committee  on Saturday had said  that the claim of Mikko as a member of PDP National Working Committee (NWC) was also illegal.

Adeyeye said the claim was contrary to the judgment by the Appeal Court on February 14 which ordered reversal to status quo ante May 21, 2016.

The continued parade of Dr Cairo Ojougboh as Deputy National Chairman and  Bernard Mikko as Acting National Publicity Secretary of the PDP are acts of impunity and will be challenged in court.

“It is a known fact that no meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) nor National Executive Committee (NEC) was held to appoint these men nor confirm them in such positions, respectively,” Adeyeye said.
