•PDP National Secretariat.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has said the party’s national secretariat, Wadata Plaza, would be re-opened not later than Friday this week.
He also said those against his chairmanship should wait till after the party’s national convention, which he did not announce the date.
Addressing a delegation of South West PDP at his Maitama, Abuja office, Sheriff said he has transmitted all documents necessary for the re-opening of the PDP headquarters, stressing that his mission was to rebuild the party.
He said that he came to the party through a process and that he would cease to be chairman after the convention.
Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State stated that he would not join issues with those against him, and called on PDP chieftains not to divide the party.
“"We have no argument with anybody. The law is certain. Nigerians have spoken. Some of the people you see, they actually don’t know where their villages are. They sit in Abuja and decide to make unnecessary statements.
“In the name of God, let's re-build this party. Don’t divide the party. Let everybody unite in order to rebuild the party. I beg Fayose to respect PDP and the people of Nigeria. I beg him. Whatever you say today, posterity will judge you, so I beg him. Let’s tell Nigerians that our party is for all.
“I am not going to be chairman forever. I will leave office after the convention. We will do a credible convention. Whoever is against me should wait until after the convention,” Sheriff said.
