BREAKING: Court of Appeal Affirms Sheriff As PDP National Chairman

The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Friday affirmed a former Governor of Borno State, Ali Sheriff, as the authentic Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The court set aside the judgement delivered by Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court in Rivers State who recognized former Kaduna State governor, Ahmed Makarfi as the leader of the party.

Messrs. Sheriff and Makarfi lead separate factions of the PDP, Nigeria’s major opposition party.

Sheriff and former Governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarffi, are both laying claim to the party chairmanship position.

Makarfi was appointed the chairman of the PDP National Caretaker Committee at last year’s botched national convention of the party held in Port Harcourt.

Meanwhile,  the counsel to Sheriff’s faction of the PDP, Prince Ajibola Oloyede, has described the appellate court verdict as “all round victory for justice and truth.”
