The Ahmed Ma­karfi-led Na­tional Caretaker Committee yesterday lambasted the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff and his Deputy, Cairo Ojougboh, say­ing they are not men of honour.
Makarfi, in a state­ment by his Spokes­man, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said that what their action portrays is that agreement and political solution to the crisis rocking the party cannot be reached with them.
Describing Sheriff and his group as peo­ple with integrity defi­cit, Makarfi said, “We have always known that Sheriff and his co travellers especially, Cairo Ojuogbo, were never men of honour with whom one can reach any agreement. But we tagged along to avoid being accused of unnecessary intransi­gence. Since the leopard cannot change its spot, it is now very clear that no agreement or po­litical solution can be reached with this bunch of people with huge in­tegrity deficit.
“Cairo is an impos­tor and a rabble rouser in a non-existent Na­tional Working Com­mittee (NWC). Sheriff has no men to consti­tute an NWC with, the required constitutional quorum. He, therefore, has to surround him­self with the likes of Cairo who was neither elected nor appointed to the position. Cai­ro’s shameless public parade of himself as Deputy National Chair­man is the worst case of impunity in the history of our great party. His threat against our hard-working staff should, therefore, be ignored and treated with utmost contempt coming from a lawless impostor.
