PDP crisis: I won’t contest chairmanship election – Sheriff

National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has pledged not to contest as a candidate in the proposed national convention of the party as recommended by the Governor Seriake Dickson’s Reconciliation Committee.

His decision followed the request for a written undertaking and the demand made by the Bayelsa State Governor and Chairman of the PDP Reconciliation Committee, Henry Seriake Dickson, to make a commitment to that effect.

While speaking to newsmen at the PDP Secretariat, Sheriff emphasised that he had accepted not to contest in the proposed national convention, stressing that he was determined to go ahead with National Unity Convention.

While announcing full acceptance of the committee’s report, with a promise not to interfere in the work of the convention committee to be set up, he commended the sacrifices made by Governor Dickson and his team, declaring that the report was not only comprehensive, but timely.
