UPDATE: Ahmed Makarfi Led PDP to Challenge Appeal Court Ruling at the Supreme Court

1.
Two out of the 3 man Justices of the Appeal Court gave a scanty
judgment in favour of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff while one for Makarfi
2. The Judgment has finally shown that the ruling Party, the APC is out to create a one party state in the country.
3.
The Party is proceeding immediately to the Supreme Court to file an
appeal against the ruling of today’s appeal court judgment

Senators
Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff have tested their legal muscles
through various litigations in many courts in Lagos, Abuja and Port
Harcourt, with each getting favourable orders and directives with the
attendant effect on stability in the party.

Chieftains of the
party from the two sides had at various fora expressed readiness to
abide by the outcome of the appeal court verdict with a view to bringing
lasting peace in the party.

A Federal High Court in Port
Harcourt had last year gave legitimacy to Makarfi as the chairman of the
party, while another court of coordinate jurisdiction in Abuja, headed
by Justice Okon Abang, had ruled that Sheriff should be recognised as
the chairman.

The PDP has not been able to play the role of
leading opposition to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) because
of the crisis ravaging it from within.
