Enough is enough, stop insulting me - Sherrif warns Fayose


Ali Modu Sheriff, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has warned Ekiti governor Ayo Fayose to stop making derogatory comments about him, saying “enough is enough”.


Sheriff on Thursday said while he will not sink to Fayose’s level of verbal altercation, he will discipline him through the constitution of the PDP.

He said this while speaking with journalists in Abuja after the meeting of members of the PDP national working committee.

Sheriff said, “Let me make it clear to some of the party members, particularly, Ayo Fayose. I will not condescend to his level.

“I must be very clear to him, party has rules and we will look at the constitution at the appropriate time to do the right thing. He has made it a point of duty; every day, he will be insulting Ali Sheriff. I want to tell him that enough is enough.

“Belonging to a political party is by choice. Yes, you may have a right, but your right should not trample on another person’s right. Political party is a voluntary association. If you are a leader of a political party, we have to allow people to have their choice of leadership.

“In all these things we are doing, we believe that the PDP belongs to all Nigerians, we believe that PDP must be handed over to the owners.

“That does not mean a sign of weakness. The PDP has produced 28 governors, and today it has 12. If we allow impunity to continue, Nigerians have the right to reject our party. You can take a horse to the river but you can’t force it to drink.

“We can make this party attractive to everybody. We want to reposition the party so that it can win elections. Nobody has the monopoly to do what he is doing, like we don’t have the rule of law.”
