MOVES by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to resolve the crisis that followed the appointment of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as national chairman collapsed yesterday. Former ministers, who are still members of the party, insisted that there was no new reason to make them change their position – that Sheriff must quit immediately.
They also frowned as the threat issued by the national chairman to one-time
Aviation Minister Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, who Sheriff said “will not go
scot-free” because of his truculent.
“A threat to one is a threat to all,” Chairman of the Forum of the ex-
Ministers, Alhaji Taminu Turaki , said yesterday.
Rising from a separate marathon meeting in Abuja yesterday, the ministers,
who were informed of the party’s decision, expressed their reservations.
