Following the recent protest by staff of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Sen Ali Modu Sheriff-led camp has intensified his lobby for the support of the staff.
But it was gathered the staff has refused to sit with Sheriff’s camp.
Sequel to the protest by staff, it was learnt that Sheriff had invited them for a meeting today by 10am, at his Maitama office.
But it was gathered that the workers, in a show of rejection, fixed a meeting of their own which will hold at the temporary headquarters used by Sen Ahmed Makarfi at the same time.
Recall that while Makarfi had supported the recent protest by the staff for the immediate reopening of the PDP national headquarters as well as speedy judgement on the legal dispute, Sheriff had asked for the staff to be patient.
A staff while explaining why they have turned down Sheriff’s invitation told Leadership that the “Staff Forum had never supported Sheriff’s camp. And we won’t do so now. Right from the onset we made our position clear that we are with Sen Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP where all the other recognized organs of the party are.
“Have you not wondered that none of us have attended any of those illegal functions he organizes at his office in Gana Street?”, the staff asked.
Meanwhile, a PDP youth group, National Youth Frontier yesterday claimed it has uncovered plots by the Sheriff’s group to infiltrate the administrative staff of the party “in order to divide and lure them to the ruling Party, the All Progressive Congress (APC).”
