Worried by the political rumbles and trading of blame, blackmail within the People Democratic Party (PDP), Plateau State Chapter, ousted PDP National leader, Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff faction in Plateau may soon be on the streets for another round of crisis following the failure of Hon Damishi Sango to nip and to handle some critical issues of dialogue as well as out of court settlement.
Our sources reliably informed this medium that after the Supreme Court judgment which is supposed to settle their differences, the state chapter has refused to accept them by instituting legal battle against the defeated Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff faction.
This information stressed they the sitting at JMDB court in Jos North Local Government Area presided by Honourable Justice Parbong on the 27th September 2017 was later adjourned to 25th October 2017 for the continuation of hearing into the matter.
However, it was gathered that each of the faction has claimed to be the authentic chairman of the party, as group loyal to both Hon Damishi Sango and Hon Gyang Badung has continued to drum support ahead of the scheduled council poll slated for 18th February 2018.
