From EMEKA NWULU, Owerri

THE Formal Deputy Speaker Federal House of Representatives Chief Emeka Ihedioha has described embattled Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff as inexperienced and unqualified candidate to lead the party.

Ihedioha stated this while briefing newsmen in Owerri after the party’s state congress to elect their new party Excos.

He stated further that Sherif was rejected by the 2/3 majority of the party members even the party caucus on the ground that he does not possess the nifty strength to take the party forward.

He reiterated that he was given an opportunity, tested twice as care taker committee and couldn’t perform.

He said he lack the merit to take the party to a national light.

Chief Ihedioha described the newly elected Excos as credible, tested and trusted with vibrant ideas to reposition the party for its success in future.

He charged them to be more focused and honest towards their services to humanity and the state at large.

He told the world that the present Exco of the party will bring succour to the party and return the lost glory of the state.
