The Coalition of PDP Youth Forum, on Wednesday cautioned members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to desist from making defamatory statements against the party’s national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and the party.
It also called on all the organs of the party to sheathe their sword and work with the leadership of the party to make it a formidable party ahead of 2019 general election.
The group in a statement signed by its national cordinator, Hon. Emmanuel Okoronkwo; national secretary John Mkpanam; and national organising secretary, Dr Emma Amushie, respectively, commended all the organs of the Peoples Democratic Party for their wise decision and general support for Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the new national chairman of PDP.
“The Forum hereby warns all warring factions to desist from making any further defamatory statement against the person of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff in particular and the party in general.
“We believe in the person of the party chairman because of his doggedness, leadership quality, ability to command a wider cloud of the political class across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria.
“His wealth of experience and political exposure; his overwhelming popularity and general acceptability.
“We therefor urge our amiable national chairman to continue extending his hands of fellowship to all aggrieved members because he is father of all in the party.
“We equally want to assure him that the coalition body is strongly behind him and his team,” the Forum stated.
