The Vice-Chairman of the Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh has debunked claims by the Ahmed Makarfi team that its members might end up in jail.

Ojougboh  said Makarfi is not telling the truth about the court order which it purportedly obtained from Justice Valentine Ashi of the High Court in Apo, Abuja on June 29, 2016.

The spokesman of the Makarfi faction, Dayo Adeyeye had earlier said that Sheriff might be jailed for parading himself as the PDP chairman.

Responding to Adeyeye’s claim, Ojougboh said “Adeyeye is shining the shoes of Governor Ayodele Fayose so that he would be awarded the Ekiti State governorship ticket. Let him kiss Fayose’s backside till thy kingdom come, Fayose will not play ball.

“The party will do what needs to be done about Adeyeye, according to our party’s constitution at the appropriate time.”

Adeyeye also blamed  Jimoh Ibrahim for the PDP’s failure to clinch the Ondo Governor’s seat in the just concluded governorship election.

He said “We also know those who pushed him forward for the hatchet job. We are amused that the agents of darkness, used by the All Progressives Congress to cause confusion and frustrate our campaign for the Ondo election, can accuse the national caretaker committee of impunity.

“However, we simply want them to define what impunity is, using their acts of betrayal as a case study. What they are doing is the worst form of impunity and avarice.”

Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction however said Governor Olusegun Mimiko is to blame for the PDP's failure in the Ondo Governorship election which was held on November 26, 2016.
