The supreme court has brought to a stop the protracted power tussle and legal war in many courts to determine the authentic Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) as it has today declared Ahmed Makarfi winner.
Though Ali-Modu Sheriff was declared the chairman of the party by the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court verdict on the other hand upturned the judgement and recognised Makarfi’s faction of the party.
The Apex court after listening to all the parties involved in the case, ruled in favour of the former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
A 3-man panel of the Apex court justices led by justice Bode Rhodes-Vivor said that the PDP national convention held in Port Harcourt that dissolved the party’s National Executive Committee was constitutional.
