The court-backed National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff on Friday visited a former PDP BoT Chairman, Chief Antony Anenih in Abuja as part of his move to win more people to his side.
After a closed door meeting that lasted about 30 minutes, Sheriff was reluctant to talk to reporters as he emerged from Chief Anenih’s residence.
But when the reporters would not take no for an answer, he said he came to see Anenih for advice and guidance as a son does to his father.
“If there are two founding fathers, Chief Anenih is one. Therefore, as a father, I came to consult with him.
“I came to tell him that this is the situation we are. He, as a father who formed this party should help us on how to reposition the party to the period of 1999.
“Baba has given us kind and fatherly advice on all matters,” Sheriff said.
Anenih on his part merely said: “Why should I reveal the advice I gave a son.”
Sheriff had earlier paid similar visits to former military President, Ibrahim Babangida and former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Although the party’s secretariat was reopened for Sheriff on Thursday, there were no activities at the premises, as the building remained deserted all through yesterday.
