Supreme Court Sacks Sherrif, Markafi Now Authentic PDP National Leader

All eyes are currently on Ahmed Markafi as the Supreme Court declared his faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the authentic leadership of the party, thereby putting an end to the nearly 14 months of legal battle with Ali Modu Sherif faction.


Giving its judgment in Abuja today, the Supreme Court upturned the verdict of the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt that declared Senator Alli Modu Sheriff as the authentic national chairman of the party.
Justice Bode Rhodes Vivour, who read the verdict of the three-man panel, held that the appeal has merit and is subsequently allowed.
The panel also awarded a cost of N250,000 against the first respondent.
The court in the judgment held that the National Convention of the party held in May 21, 2016 was validly convened and in line with the PDP constitution.
Meanwhile, there was wild jubilation by PDP faithful of the Makarfi faction who were present in court.
Among the PDP faithful in court included Governors Nyesome Wike of Rivers, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti, as well as a former governor of Kano State Ibrahim Shekarau.
However, Sheriff was absent during the judgment.
