Vanguard also reports that eight members of the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have dumped the embattled chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.

The former NWC members also pledged their support for the newly elected caretaker committee chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.

They also called on PDP leaders to stop promoting their personal interests, adding that the election of Makarfi is in line with the PDP constitution.

According to Vanguard, the former NWC members said “we accept without equivocations all decisions and resolutions of the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party held at Port Harcourt on the 21st of May, 2016.”

Governor Nyesom Wike, who spoke to newsmen after the Port-Harcourt convention, said the removal of Sheriff was in the best interest of the PDP.
