Politics PDP Tussle: Court Sacks Ahmed Makarfi, Declares Sheriff Authentic Chairman

#1
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has sacked PDP Acting Chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.

The court thereby declared Ali Modu Sheriff as authentic PDP chairman.




The court, in a ruling by Justice Okon Abang, held that every action the Committee has taken since it emerged through a convention the party purportedly held in Port Harcourt on May 21, amounted to nullity.

“Parties have an uncompromising duty to obey court order until it is set aside. The Lagos Division made orders on May 12 and 20, forbidding the PDP from removing the Sheriff-led Caretaker Committee. That order is still subsisting.

“Having regard to the order of the court, PDP had no lawful authority to hold the convention that led to the emergence of the Markafi-led Committee", Justice Abang said.
