Sheriff however said he would only leave the office when due process is followed.

He made the comments on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, while receiving some state chairmen of the party in Abuja, Punch reports.

“I’m ready to go. I’m not saying I must be the national chairman at all costs.  I was invited to lead the party and the election that brought me to office was done at the NEC Hall of the party at its national secretariat,” he said.

“Four other aspirants contested against me at the NEC meeting. There’s nothing personal about my being there or individual pride about it. It is about the rule of law and the rule of law must not give way to illegalities.

“Ahmed Mu’azu got his election when former President Goodluck Jonathan was elected as the party’s presidential candidate in 2015. I replaced him. So, my tenure would expire after four years in office,” he added.

The PDP removed Sheriff on May 21 during its national convention but he refused to leave the office.
