New PDP chairman Ali-Modu Sheriff, insists he has nothing to do with Boko Haram

Embattled Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff, says he will

not be resigning from his position as the party's Chairman despite

the public outcry by some members since his appointment. Sheriff

stated this at the PDP secretariat in Abuja shortly after he

officially took over the party leadership.Reacting to allegations

that he is a sponsor of the Insurgency group, Boko Haram,

Sheriff said“I won’t resigned because the leadership of the party,

in their wisdom, chose me to lead the PDP for the purpose

of rebuilding and repositioning the party at this critical period,

”he said.

“Boko Haram killed my own brother. They killed members of

my family, so why should I sponsor people to kill my own

brother, my own family. I am not a fanatic. I love to enjoy

my life. Boko Haram are criminals who live in the bush

and eat once a day. I believe their sponsors will be caught

at the end of the day. I have nothing to do with Boko Haram,”

he said. He singled out a former Aviation Minister,

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, among the people linking him with

the terror sect, saying “this time around, people like

Fani-Kayode will not go scot free.”
