“I never planned to be the PDP Chairman but God used people like Fayose and other Nigerians to make me the chairman (of the party),” Sheriff said.

“I was sleeping in my room when Fayose called me from Port Harcourt and said I was going to be the new National Chairman. For me, it was a miracle.

“God chose Fayose for Ekiti people because of his popularity in the state. He was taken to the prison and eight years after, he came back. People won’t be happy with the governor if he has not been fair to them," he added.

Sheriff’s emergence as PDP chairman has led to dissatisfaction among members due to his alleged connection with Boko Haram.
