The Court of Appeal sitting in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state, on Thursday declared Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic PDP National Chairman.
The Court dismissed Sen. Ahmed Makarfi’s preliminary Objection.
It declared that the decision taking at the may 21 Port-Harcourt convention as null and void.
It was gathered that the three judges of the court in a unanimous decision agreed that the Modu Sheriff is the chairman of the PDP.
Senators Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff had tested their legal muscles through various litigations in several courts in Nigeria (Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt), with each getting favourable orders and directives with the attendant effect on stability in the party.
