The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and former Borno State governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff,Â on MondayÂ maintained that he would not bow to the numerous demand by some members of the party, calling for his resignation.
He therefore pleaded with aggrieved members of the party to sheathe their swords and work with him towards repositioning the party for a greater height.
Speaking at the formal taking over of the helms of affairs of the party, Ali Modu-Sheriff said, “The time ahead is certainly not going to be easy. We are aware of the high expectations from Nigerians for us to give the party a new focus.
“Our party is a party that has an avalanche of qualified people who can proffer solution to our problems. We accepted to serve not because we are the best, but because we have been identified to be capable of doing the task ahead.
“I will carry everybody along. I have come to form a partnership with party men and women. The wrangling that is going on is normal, but we will overcome. I will contact everybody that matters in the party because we have the same goal which is rebuilding the party to its enviable height.”
