– Fani-Kayode has disclosed the reason why Sheriff emerged as the new national chairman of PDP
– He said that the new chairman wants to use his position as a platform to contest 2019 general election
– He added that some chieftains of the party ‘blindly’ endorsed him for the position because of his deep pocket
A former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party 2015 presidential Campaign, Femi Fani-Kayode has continued to express his opposition to the appointment of former Borno state governor Ali Modu-Sheriff, as the substantive national of the party, saying Sheriff plan is to hijack the party for his presidential ambition in 2019.
Fani-Kayode, who is also a former minister of aviation, added his voice to the growing opposition to Sheriff as the party chairman.
He made this pronouncement in an article that he published on Friday, February 19, titled ‘ Modu Sheriff: who has bewitched PDP?’.

Fani-Kayode paints a gloomy of the Sheriff as “most controversial, intellectually-challenged, morally-depraved and despicable character”, Daily Post reports.
The PDP chieftain said that the new chairman was allegedly appointed because “‘he has plenty of money to spend on the party” and no less than “5 private jets” to lend out to those who needed a free plane ride”.
He wondered why the party did not settled for a northeast candidate with good track records and antecedent like Nuhu Ribadu, Bala Mohammed, Mohammed Wakil, Aliyu Modibbo, Ahmed Gulak and Wilberforce Juta instead of Sheriff, who he said cannot be separated from Boko Haram insurgency that has been causing great havoc to the country.

The former minister further stressed that the new PDP chairman long term ambition was to hijack the party structure in order to emerge its presidential candidate in 2019.
Meanwhile, Sheriff had promised to lead the party to regain control of the federal government in 2019.
He stated this in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, during a thanksgiving service organised to mark the victory of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu at the Supreme Court.
