Dayo Adeyeye said Sheriff was appointed and by the National Executive Committee of the PDP to complete the tenure of Adamu Mu’azu.
The spokesperson for the Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee, Dayo Adeyeye has challenged Ali Modu Sheriff to show the court orders he claimed recognized him as the authentic chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, Adeyeye said Sheriff was appointed and by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP to complete the tenure of Adamu Mu’azu.
“In his press conference yesterday, Senator Sheriff gave the false impression that he has court orders that empower him to continue as National chairman of the PDP.
“Despite his bravado, he did not display or make available the court orders to the gentlemen of the press.
“The truth of the matter is that Senator Sheriff has no court orders to back his claims. He and his cohorts continue to shop around to buy any court order at any price, but so far they have not succeeded, thanks to the vigilance and integrity of the judiciary,” he said.
He stated that the tenure of Mu’azu would have ended on the February 14, 2016 adding that Sheriff was given an extension of three months by the NEC to organize a national convention.
“The appointment of Senator Sheriff was not ratified by any National Convention of our party; so constitutionally, he has no other mandate which can extend beyond 21st May, 2016,” he said.
Adeyeye accused Sheriff of instituting the case before Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court Lagos and others to restrain the PDP from conducting election into the offices of the National Chairman, National Secretary and National Auditor.
