The Makarfi PDP also said that Sheriff and his supporters are trying to destroy the party.

The comments were made by PDP spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.

“At the charade called campaign flag-off, not a word of condemnation was uttered by the 'PDP members' against the APC government, but rather, abusive words were hurled at Governor Olusegun Mimiko, the Chairman of PDP Governors Forum, whereas, the contestant the so called PDP members are to wrestle for people's vote with, is an APC candidate. What an irony..!” Adeyeye said in reference to the Sheriff faction’s governorship campaign in Ondo.

“As much as we don't  intend to banter words with this former members of the PDP, we however, feel constrained to put in the public domain once again, facts as it relates to the intents of these agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) masquerading as PDP members.

"We wish to state clearly that Ali Modu-Sheriff and his ilk are known enemies of our party, planted to destabilize the vibrant party that provided good leadership for the country for 16 years.

“We can say without fear of contradiction and as well, challenge Nigerians to point out where, even, for once, those parading themselves as PDP members, have dare to issue a statement condemning any of the several gaffes of the APC government.

“We say clearly that not for once has Modu-Sheriff and his team of confused travellers said a word against the mis-governance of the APC. We are not surprised because we know it's suicidal for a servant to criticize the master,” he added.

The PDP has been rocked by a leadership crisis since it attempted to remove Sheriff as chairman in May.
