The Supreme Court today (Wednesday) declared Ahmed Makarfi as the authentic leadership of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
The contest is between the Ali Sheriff, who was purportedly removed at the party’s May 21 2016 convention, and the national caretaker committee chaired by Ahmed Makarfi.
While the Makarfi faction enjoys the support of most of the organs of the PDP, the Sheriff faction was declared the authentic leadership by the Court of Appeal.
Many members of the PDP including former governors and current lawmakers have since decamped from the party, citing the division in its leadership as reason.
The pronouncement of the Supreme Court today finally resolve the leadership crisis by declaring Ahmed Makarfi the Care-taker Committee Chairman of the party (PDP).
