The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Leo Ogor has said the initial decision to appoint Ali Modu Sheriff as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was a “regrettable and major mistake.”
Ogor lamented that the former Borno State Governor has done more damage than good to the party.
Responding to a question from The Sun, the lawmaker said, “Sure. It is a major mistake that we made, a very regrettable one. Sometimes it is too late to cry when the head is off. We are already in it.
“Bringing the person of (Ali-Modu) Sheriff into our system, I regret it immensely. It is a very regrettable mistake. We wouldn’t have found ourselves in this predicament.
“It is sad. Because this is somebody that was driven away from the APC and because of our open mindedness, we accepted him. Unfortunately, he has come to do what he knows how to do best.
Recall that the former ruling party has been involved in leadership tussle.
Just recently, a Port Harcourt Appeal Court affirmed Sheriff as the Chairman of the party, but the Caretaker Committee under the leadership of Ahmed Makarfi took the matter to the Supreme Court.
