Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the party will carry everybody along because it belongs to the people.

Sheriff made this assertion on Friday in Port Harcourt after being screened for the post of national chairman with other candidates, ahead of Saturday`s National Convention of the party.

Sheriff said: “PDP is the only party that belongs to Nigerians and owned by Nigerians.

“There is no sole owner of PDP. PDP is for you, PDP is for our brothers in the village, PDP is for the elders in Abuja, PDP is for everybody. Therefore, we will carry everyone along.”

Sheriff, former governor of Borno, also said that the party would embark on an aggressive reconciliation process after the convention to carry all groups along.

According to him, the way forward is for everybody to be united. Anybody that is aggrieved, we will work towards getting our members on one page.

“We want a united house. In party politics, it is natural that all views must not be the same.

“As much as possible, we try to unite all views for everyone to have a sense of belonging.”

The Chairman of the PDP National Convention Screening committee, Mr Emmanuel Aguma, said that the exercise was done in line with the party’s constitution.

Aguma, who is the Rivers Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, said that the exercise was thorough.

The committee also screened its Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Seondus.
