Senator Hope Uzodinma has accused Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors of causing problem in the party.

Uzodinma said the Governors were the ones that called the embattled chairman of the PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff to come and lead the party.

The lawmaker said “Remember it was the PDP governors that brought Ali Modu Sheriff in the first place to make him chairman.”

Adding that “Sheriff now came on board and sold himself to the stakeholders and we saw that he has capacity, so when the chairmanship was zoned to the North-East, they unanimously endorsed him as their candidate for ratification by the national convention. There was no other candidate from his zone.

“He was the consensus candidate of the North-East where the chairmanship was zoned to. Incredibly, the same governors, who brought and endorsed Sheriff in the first place, now decided to kick against his chairmanship.

“So, I don’t know what really happened or when the marriage between the governors and Sheriff crashed or what the problem is, but whichever way you look at it, it will not be out of place for anybody to say that the governors are a problem in the part.”

Reports say an Abuja High court on Wednesday, June 29, 2016, sacked Ali Modu Sheriff as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
