Ali Modu Sherriff sworn in as PDP Chairman on February 17, 2016

Sheriff was sworn in yesterday, February 16, 2016, after being ratified by the PDP National Caucus and other stakeholders within the opposition party.

A member of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) had earlier told Punch that Sheriff would likely be chosen due to his financial strength.

“He (Sheriff) has money. He is fearless and he has the capacity to galvanise the north for the PDP,” the PDP NWC member said.

The choice of Sheriff as PDP Chairman has however been met with outrage by many due to allegations that he is a sponsor of terrorist sect, Boko Haram.
