We are still members of PDP – Ojouigboh

Dr. Cairo Ojouigboh, the Deputy National Vice Chairman of the defunct Senator Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the Peoples Democratic Party has said they are still members of the party despite the recent Supreme Court judgement.
Ojouigboh said this in an interview with newsmen on Sunday in Warri, Delta State shortly after meeting with some members who were loyal to the former Chairman of the party.
Ojouigboh, however, said they were awaiting the receipt of the Supreme Court judgement for their lawyers to study and advise appropriately.
He said: “For now, we are still members of the party and we will be ready to work for the success of PDP in future elections.
“We are PDP members and faithful ones.
“We are awaiting the written judgement and wait for the advice of our lawyers.”
Ojouigboh urged the party faithfuls in Delta State return to the grassroots and woo people to strengthen the party, while they await directive from the former executive of the party.
On his part the Delta State factional Chairman of the party, Austin Ogbabunor, urged the former leadership of the party to note the challenges of the party in the state and integrate them into the party.
Ogbabunor, however, said they would not hesitate to form their own party should the PDP in Delta State refuse to absorb them.
The Supreme Court had last week declared the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Alhaji Ahmed Makarfi, as the authentic leader of the party.
