ABUJA—FORMER spokesperson to immediate past President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan’s Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, said yesterday, that the embattled former National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was a curse on the party and must be kicked out, if the PDP must be returned to its past glory.
Fani-Kayode in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, said the mission of Sheriff to PDP was to destroy the party.
He, however, stressed that each time the former governor of Borno State moved to a new party that was not in power at the centre, what he often did would be to quickly assume the role of a government mole, and put everything in motion to destroy it from within on behalf of the government of the day.
Fani-Kayode’s statement read: “Lying Ali Modu Sheriff told Channels TV last night (Sunday) that I sent people to beg him for claiming that he was Boko Haram. These are the lies of a desperate and drowning man. “He came to destroy the PDP and if we did not rise against him and kicked him out when we did, he would have succeeded in his mission. I am proud to have been the first to see him for what he is and to publicly blow the whistle on him.
“I was one of those that led the rebellion against him and orchestrated the campaign to push him out and dump him as the National Chairman of our party and many have thanked me for that, including some of those that brought him in and attempted to impose him on us.
“The man is of the devil and no-one should believe a word that comes out of his mouth or take him seriously. He is a curse to the PDP and the sooner he is kicked out of the party the better it is for us all. “On the issue of “changing goal posts” let me add the following. Modu Sheriff has changed political parties no less than four times in the last few years.
“Each time he goes to a new party that is not in power at the center, he assumes the role of a government mole and tries to destroy it from within on behalf of the government of the day “That is his modus operandi. On return he gets protection from the state for all the many atrocities he has committed over the years. He has betrayed everyone and every political party he has ever worked with or for.
“Go and ask around. We used him to spy on and destroy the APP when Obasanjo was in power and now Buhari is using him to destroy the PDP. Luckily, he has failed because 99 per cent of PDP members have rejected him and now he is on his own.”
“He failed in his evil mission and now he is making noise like a chicken or snake whose head has been cut off. Unlike him, I am consistent in my views and I am as constant as the northern star.
“It is a matter of good breeding. With me you will always know where you stand and I will always speak my mind no matter whose ox is gored. He is the opposite. “He pretends to be a friend and a loyalist when his real plan is to stab you in the back and kill you on the night. He does not have the courage to be loyal to any cause, any person or any political party.
