The Supreme Court today (Wednesday) ruled that Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi is the authentic chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
The contest was with Ali Sheriff, who was purportedly removed at the party’s May 21 2016 convention, and the national caretaker committee chaired by Ahmed Makarfi.
While the Makarfi faction enjoys the support of most of the organs of the PDP, the Sheriff faction was declared the authentic leadership by the Court of Appeal.
Many members of the PDP including former governors and current lawmakers have since decamped from the party, citing the division in its leadership as reason.
The pronouncement of the Supreme Court today has put to rest, the legal tussle in the party and provided an altanative platfom for other Nigerians to check the excesses of the APC led government at the national level, Elanza News gathered.
