Sen. Ali-Modu Sheriff on Monday in Abuja assumed office as National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and decried calls for his resignation by PDP Rescue Group. Sheriff, in an interview with newsmen after he took over, said he was not going to resign his appointment as the chairman of the party.
“The leadership of this party in their wisdom asked me to lead. If the National Executive Council (NEC) of this party collectively asks me to leave, I will leave. I will reposition this party and take it to election within a time frame decided by the leaders of this party to conduct a credible, effective congress that will stand the test of time,” he said.
