BREAKING: Makarfi floors Sheriff at Supreme Court, now authentic PDP Chairman

Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday morning ruled in favour of the former Kaduna State governor, Senator Ahmed Makarfi as the authentic chairman of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, in a suit over leadership dispute between him and former Borno state governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.

Justice Rhodes Vivour, leading the Supreme Court justices, read the judgements as it relates to the various applications.

In his judgement, he said that the conduct of the PDP national convention which brought in caretaker committee chaired by Ahmed Makarfi, was legal as it “did not violate any court orders”.

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 Makarfi.‎
