Makarfi declared authentic PDP leader by the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has delivered judgment on the appeal by the Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) challenging the decision of the Court of Appeal which recognised Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic chairman of the party.

 Makarfi had approached the apex court to affirm him as the chairman of the party after the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt Rivers state had in February this year, ruled that former Borno state governor, Ali Modu Sheriff, was the authentic national chairman of PDP.

Makarfi who has the support of all the PDP state governors, filed a petition at the apex court and judgement was delivered in his favor this morning. This puts to rest the long leadership crisis that has plagued the party.
