- Honourable Edward Pwajok has blamed the PDP for not putting its house in order
- The Plateau lawmaker said the party brought about its own downfall
- He blamed Fayose and other top members for bringing Sheriff in to be party chairman
Honourable Edward Pwajok has described Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as an undertaker brought into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to destroy the party.
Daily Post reports that Pwajok spoke shortly after he defected from the PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The lawmaker representing Jos South/East federal constituency said he warned against the coming of Sheriff and also criticised the party stakeholders for not doing enough for peace to reign in the party.
He said: “Governor Fayose has been quoted not once, not twice, as saying that if the Supreme Court affirms Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the chairman of PDP, he and others like him will have no option but to leave the PDP and join another party.
“Is that how to reconcile? Don’t forget that it was the same Fayose that invited Sheriff into the PDP. It was not APC that imposed Sheriff on PDP. It is a self-inflicted wound.
"Some of us had warned that bringing this man into the party is like bringing an undertaker to come and bury the party. Have we not been vindicated now?
