Ali Modu Sheriff is a wrong choice as PDP Chairman- Doyin Okupe

Former Spokesperson of the immediate past President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, has said the appointment of Ali Modu Sheriff as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman is wrong and also coming at a wrong time.
Sharing his thoughts on his Facebook wall, Okupe noted that the present crop of leadership of the PDP fared badly by involving themselves in presumptive reasoning, ‘restrictive consultative processes, absolute lack of inclusiveness, mercantilism, group conceit with a resultant total disconnect with the main stake holders and the followership.’
“The capability of our party, the pdp and its leadership to make grave errors of judgement is legendary. What is intriguing is that even out of power that tendency seems unabating.
“Alhaji Ali Sheriff is a longstanding political associate of mine and a very adroit and astute politician of perhaps a sublime class.
“But for the post of the National chairman of the PDP, He is a wrong candidate and also coming in at a wrong time.
“According to many of his proponents, his strong point is that being a man of great financial resources he will be favourably disposed to funding the activities of the party easily. But the antagonists believe that he is bringing along with his wealth a crushing weight of burden capable of fatally destroying the few strands of moral fibres on which rejuvenation will depend on.
“For a morose and severely prostrate political party, thanks to the overwhelming and effective propaganda machinery of the (opposition) party in power, this may yet be the mortal wound that may cause the eventual haemorrhage of its long perplexed followership.
“The present crop of leadership of the PDP has not fared well. Impunity, presumptive reasoning, highly stratified and restrictive consultative processes, absolute lack of inclusiveness, mercantilism, group conceit with a resultant total disconnect with the main stake holders and the followership are some of the florid signs and symptoms of the terminal disease that is killing this erstwhile great party.
“Some of us have vowed not to leave the party. We still will not leave the party. Better still in spite of the present situation of things we will continue to engage all who care to listen and deepen consultation across the country seeking help from everyone ready to help to revive this severely challenged sickened giant.
“But if it is the divine will of God that our present masters must kill PDP, then by the Grace of God we shall yet tarry at the graveside to bid it farewell,” he wrote.
