Jonathan: "I did not endorse Sheriff As PDP Chairman"

Ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan has berated claims by the media that he endorsed Ali Modu Sheriff as the People's Democratic Party (PDP) chairman.

He said he merely opened his doors to Sheriff and other members of his entourage when they visited him at his residence in Abuja on Monday.

In a statement by Mr Jonathan’s media aide, Mr Ikechukwu Eze, the former president said that the issue of endorsement never came up in the course of the visit,“at the closed door meeting with Sheriff nor during the former President’s interview with newsmen.”

Mr Eze said that the reported endorsement was mischievous.

According to him, Dr. Jonathan received Sen. Sheriff, “as a former President and foremost leader of the party, welcomed Sheriff and some of his supporters to his house, in line with a mediation role he is playing towards unifying and strengthening the PDP.”

He further stated that Jonathan opened his doors to Sheriff upon his request, just as he had earlier done to the Makarfi-led caretaker committee members, adding that the former President is prepared to broker more talks until the issues in the leadership of the PDP were finally resolved.
