Makarfi is PDP national chairman, Supreme Court rules

The Supreme Court has declared Ahmed Markafi as the authentic national chairman of People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The judgment was delivered by a panel of judges of the apex court on Wednesday morning.

The first issue resolved in favour of the Makarfi faction was the preliminary objection by the Ali Modu Sheriff faction, holding that the appeal by the Makarfi faction was valid.

The apex court also held that the suit filed by Makarfi at the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt was not an abuse of court process as wrongly held by the majority judgment of the Court of Appeal, also in Port Harcourt.

Senator Modu-Sheriff was absent in court.

The judgment was ongoing as at press time
