A former Deputy Scribe of the Peoples Democratic Party Abdullahi Jalo has refuted an allegation of a planned imposition of Jimi Agbaje or any other person on the party as chairman.
 
His comments at a press conference in Abuja on Monday come in the wake of comments by one of the chairmanship candidates, Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman of Daar Communications, to which he said some PDP governors
wanted to impose Mr. Agbaje on the party during the botched convention in Port Harcourt last week. 

Mr. Jalo also urged Ali Modu Sheriff to renounce his  claim to the PDP chairmanship seat.

The party has been in serious crisis of leadership since its defeat by the ruling party All Progressives Congress in 2015 presidential election.

Currently, there are two factions of the party; one being led by Modu Sheriff and another by Ahmed Makarfi.
