Senator Ahmed Makarfi has won his position as chairman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, knocking out the other contender, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
The Supreme Court in Abuja affirmed the PDP national convention in Port Harcourt that established Makarfi’s committee and described the process that led to it as correct and in line with the Party’s Constitution.
It consequently sacked Ali Modu Sheriff and members of his National Working Committee from the leadership of the Party.
A lot of people waited for this final round and the court’s decision. When it happened it went viral immediately. Many Nigerians believe if Ali Modu Sheriff wins it would furthermore disorganize the party. Now that Senator Ahmed Makarfi has won people are saying the PDP will reorganize quickly.
