Ali Modi Sheriff was mentioned in a report several years ago as one of the purported sponsors of the terrorist group.

Makarfi made the allegations at the meeting between his committee, the Board of Trustees (BoT) and PDP governors on Thursday morning.

“You are all witnesses to the thuggery that took place.Actually, those who remembered how Boko Haram was born, that is how it started. How thugs were brought into Abuja and some people forced themselves into the secretariat, in the process documents and some property belonging to be party cannot be accounted for. This cannot be without some supports from some quarters, definitely not from PDP,”

He recalled that he heard Sheriff saying that he was going to go beyond Inspector General Police in order for him to gain access into the PDP secretariat, adding “We don’t know what he means beyond the IG but all of you are sensible enough to decide who is ‘beyond IG could actually mean’”.

Markarfi urged security agencies to maintain peace and order in the country and to frustrate the efforts of desperate politicians.

“And those elements that may be interfering in our internal affairs, whether they belong to any particular party or they do not belong to any at all, they should allow us to be, as we are not interfering in any other body’s affairs.

“We have it on record that the former Chairman, Sheriff, a day or two before he forced himself into the secretariat had a meeting with one of the governors with the party in power and then the next day this event took place, therefore creating suspicion.

“If he claimed to be chairman of PDP, what meeting could he have had with the governor? Did he get any encouragement, facilitation, any guarantee for him to go ahead and do what he did?This is for Nigerians to think on and take a position on.

“But we are confident that at the end of the day justice will be done. We are confident that all the issues before the judiciary that justice will be done.”

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
