The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, on Thursday said he would take the party’s campaign to grassroots but vowed not to work with those fomenting crisis in the opposition in the party.
He made this known when a delegation of the Arewa Social Media Forum led by Yusuf Dingyadi, paid him a courtesy visit at the national secretariat of the PDP in Abuja on Thursday.
According to Mr. Sheriff, the crisis in the party was man-made and self-inflicted, adding that he would ensure the return of the party to the grassroots to ensure viability ahead of 2019 elections.
“We have the mandate of the party members and leaders to reposition the party and we will not work with anyone who will create crisis or violence in the party, no matter their positions.
“The party has suffered enough for its mistakes, and members and indeed Nigerians are looking forward toward a repositioned PDP”, he said.
Sheriff noted that PDP lost the presidential election to the All Progressives Congress, APC, due to injustice and frustration of members by some leaders in the party.
Earlier, Mr. Dingyadi said youths had been neglected for long in the northern part of the country.
