National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, stated on Monday that he will allow God to decide on whether or not to contest the 2019 Presidential election.

Sheriff’s declaration at a press conference in Abuja came just a few weeks after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) fixed February 16, 2019, for Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Explaining that there was already an understanding among party stakeholders that the presidency will go to the north, Sheriff explained that members of his NWC whose tenures are still running had the right to contest for party offices at the next PDP convention.

The PDP boss also stated that the position of the national chairmanship of the party has been zoned to the Southern part of the country.

Sheriff said for every position he had occupied in his political career, it was God that made it possible.

“Every position I have occupied in life, God made it possible. I am a firm believer in the will of God. I told you I will not run for the chairmanship position, the rest we leave to God.”

The National Chairman said as soon as the party concludes its ongoing consultation, it will set up a convention committee.

He stated that as part of its consultation, it is meeting with the party’s national ex-officio members from the 36 states while he is talking with lawmakers from the National Assembly, state assemblies as part of political solution recommended by the Governor Seriake Dickson committee.

According to Sheriff, he has also commenced talks with the Board of Trustees through its chairman, Senator Walid Jubril who promised to get back to him in order for them to schedule a formal meeting with the members.

“Everywhere in our party, we are working across the board; everybody is working for the party to come back to its position in 1999. We are for peace and that does not mean that we are afraid of anybody; we will not be relenting, we need our party back in power and we will carry everybody along that mean well for PDP.

“I assure you that PDP will not be destroyed; PDP is a creation of God and cannot be destroyed by anybody. We are on course and we will go as planned. For everybody that believes that it is not political solution, they are on their own,” Sheriff stated.(The Guardian)
