Wed, Jul 19, 2017 | By publisher


ALI Modu Sheriff, a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said he would collaborate with global anti-corruption agencies to bring all corrupt politicians in Nigeria to book.

Sheriff disclosed this through Bernard Mikko, a former spokesmen for his National Working Committee, on Tuesday, July 18, while reacting to some reports that he was absent from the party’s caucus meeting.

He appealed to members of his camp not to leave the PDP, adding that he would address a world press conference on the way forward, after studying the Supreme Court judgment that removed him from office.

Mikko stated that Sheriff was neither in the country nor invited to the meeting at Wadata Plaza on Monday, July 17, evening.

He told Sheriff’s supporters: “We assure them that we will not only give them a voice, but they will also be heard. We will collaborate with global anti-corruption networks to bring all corrupt politicians in Nigeria to book, including the PDP members having criminal cases bordering on dishonesty and malfeasance.”
