PDP crisis: Court re-affirms Sheriff’s sack as PDP Chairman

17 August 2016, 19:54

Abuja - A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has re-affirmed the sack of former Borno State governor, Ali Modu Sheriff as the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reports Channels TV

Justice Nwamaka Ogbonnaya, who presided over the court reaffirmed the sack on the ground that the judgment of Justice Valentine Ashi, which nullified his appointment on June 29 has not been set aside or vacated and is therefore subsisting.

The court held that all actions taken by -Sherif are null, void and of no effect since the earlier order of Justice Ashi remains binding.

The court also restrains Sheriff from further parading himself as the National Chairman of the PDP.

Justice Ashi had in his judgment on June 28 nullified the 2014 PDP Constitution amendment upon which Senator Sheriff is said to have been appointed as PDP Chairman.

The court according to News 24 described the amendment of the party’s constitution as illegal and a violation of the Electoral Act and, therefore, declared all actions carried out with the document, including anybody parading him or herself as officer of the party as illegal.
