PDP CRISIS: MAKARFI WINS AT SUPREME COURT


An application filed by Ali Modu Sheriff, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), asking the court not to hear the appeal of Ahmed Makarfi, national caretaker of the party has been dismissed by Supreme Court on Monday.

Makarfi had a filed an appeal at the apex court to challenge the judgement of the Port Harcourt division of the appeal court which sacked his caretaker committee and affirmed Sheriff as chairman of the party.

The hearing of the matter was fixed for May 25.

Ali Modu Sheriff in the application asked the Supreme court to not to hear Makarfi’s appeal because he could not initiate legal proceedings in the name of party, having being sacked by the appeal court.

But at the court on Monday, Akin Olujimi, counsel to Sheriff, said Wole Olanipekun, counsel to Markafi, was abusing the court by using two processes to sustain his appeal.

He further asked the court not to allow the appeal, stating that Olanipekun did not apply for leave on some 20 out 24 grounds of arguments.
