Femi Fani-Kayode, the former minister of aviation has alleged that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff bewitched some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors who supported his election as the party's chairman.

The former minister made the comment while reacting to a Facebook post by Doyin Okupe, a senior special assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs titled: "Failed PDP convention: APC, Buhari Not to blame"

Describing Sheriff as a 'quintessential plague,' Fani-Kayode said Sheriff was imposed on the party by some governors elected on the platform of the PDP.

"If you remember I warned the governors about Sheriff when they imposed him on us," Fani-Kayode said.

"The PDP Ministers Forum rejected him as did the PDP Board of Trustees but the governors would not listen. Now we have been vindicated because everything that we said would happen has come to pass.

"The imposition of Sheriff by the Governors Forum was the biggest mistake that we have made since conceding the election to Buhari and frankly, as I wrote at the time, I believe that he bewitched the governors that brought him and indeed those in the party that accepted him and agreed to work with him. 

"Now the power of the spell has worne off and their eyes have opened. Sadly though things will get worse because Sheriff is under orders: he is working a script and that script was crafted by those who commissioned him to divide, weaken and kill our party. 

"When you open your doors for a snake what do you expect? I am not surprised by all he is doing because he is acting true to type: he is a green snake who has dipped his fangs deeply into our flesh and whose poison is killing us slowly.

"Truth is that there can never be any compromise with Sheriff. You cannot compromise with the devil or a snake. You cannot wine and dine or attempt to cohabit with a creature that the great writer and teacher, Mr. David Icke, describes as a 'shape-shifting sociopath and reptilian'.

"There can be no fellowship between light and darkness even in politics. You cannot negotiate with a narcissistic megalomaniac who wants your head to be cut off and served to him on a silver platter. Sheriff is working for Buhari to destroy the PDP and he has almost succeeded in his mission. 

"The only answer is for us to continue to fight him in the courts and elsewhere and, if push comes to shove, form another party, get our members and supporters to join that party and leave the bastard with the carcass of the old PDP.

"Very few people will stay with him because carcasses tend to stink and because he is the quintessential plague. After some time even his most die-hard supporters will get sick of him and abandon him," he added.

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had on Monday, August 15, 2016 suspended the PDP convention planned by the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the party.

Similarly, Justice Okon Abang ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to desist from monitoring the convention.

But the Markarfi-led PDP Caretaker Committee insisted that the convention would hold. The event was later suspended as security officers prevented delegates from gaining entrance into Sharks Stadium, Port Harcourt, venue of the convention.
