Ernest Chinwo in Port Harcourt
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said former acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, had a hidden agenda before coming to the national convention of the party in Port Harcourt.
He also said Sheriff made a u-turn on the national convention when he got information that he was not qualified to contest the election on Saturday.
He said, “We have seen that there is a hidden agenda. But nobody can destroy the PDP. The PDP will wax stronger “
He noted that Sheriff had subjected himself to screening by the National Convention Screening Committee on Friday wherein he praised the transparent process only to cite a court order on Saturday in a press conference when the result of the screening committee did not favour him.
The governor said that by his anti-party actions, the former Acting National Chairman has proved his numerous critics right that he was out to destroy the PDP.
Wike who served as Chairman of the 2016 National Convention Planning Committee said that the main associates of the former Acting National Chairman are men of questionable character
