Olufemi Fani-Kayode, the former aviation minister, has stated that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) needs serious prayers.
Apparently, Fani-Kayode reacted to the announcement of former Borno state governor, Ali Modu Sheriff as new PDP chairman.
FFK, who was the party’s presidential spokesman during the 2015 election, posted on his Twitter account:
“Given todays events it is clear to me that, more than at any other time in its 16 years in existence, the PDP needs serious prayers.”

However, his tweet was deleted later.
The choice of former governor of Borno state, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the new national chairman of the party caused a new twist in the crisis rocking the PDP as there was a sharp division among the organs of the party.
After very exhaustive discussions, the National Executive Committee of the opposition party confirmed Sheriff as the new national chairman of the party to replace Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.
The decision of the NEC followed the nomination of Senator Sheriff by the National Caucus.
The PDP was defeated in the March 2015 general election after holding power for 16 years.
