Factional PDP National Chairman, Ali Module Sheriff has been fingered as the main man sponsoring the National Peace Corps with a view to using the organisation as his own security backup come 2019 when he hopes to run for Presidential election.
Our investigations revealed that Sheriff has already pumped 2 billion Naira to the project wit a large part of the money going into the daily running of the organisation while another chunk went into lobbying the National Assembly members. Already the bill on the Peace Corps has been passed by the Lower House waiting for the Senate to do same
Abujreporters gathered that during the last visit of the self acclaimed Chairman to the Wadata plaza headquarters of the PDP, he was believed to have come with some of the members of the Corps bearing arms. Indeed, SSS details at the headquarters had to arrest six of them. Till date, they have not been released.
Sheriff is a licenced arms importer. He was believed to have also armed and equipped the now deadly Bolo Haram while he was Governor of Borno State. Already the Peace Corps has offices all over the federation and unless the Sheriff dream is aborted, another deadly private army is about to be born.
