The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Chris Nehikhare, said Sheriff has no constitutional right to suspend the state’s leadership.

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has described the suspension of its state executive committee by the
Ali Modu Sheriff leadership of the party as “laughable”.
The PDP faction led by Sheriff had on Saturday, June 25, reportedly announced the suspension of the state officers and replaced them with an eight-member caretaker committee chaired by Chief Ebenezer Alabi.
Sheriff and a former National Secretary of the PDP, Professor Wale Oladipo had in a statement cited “various petitions deriving from allegations of irregularities, arising from the last state congresses that sought to elect (an) executive committee for the chapter”.
Speaking to Punch on Saturday, June 25, the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Chris Nehikhare, said that the former Governor of Borno State has no constitutional right to suspend the state’s leadership.
“He has no right to do what he is doing. But we know he is being sponsored by the All Progressives Congress. The most interesting part of it is that even those he picked as members of his caretaker committee are all flying documents of the illegal kangaroo committee.
“It is laughable and he is turning himself into a comedian in the mode of Baba Sala,” Nehikhare said.

However, it was gathered that the committee set up by Sheriff to conduct a fresh primary election, ahead of the September 10 governorship polls, has arrived in Benin, the state capital.
