Sheriff rejects judgment sacking him as PDP Chairman

19 August 2016, 15:20

Abuja - Factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff has rejected a court judgment sacking him as party Chairman.

A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court sitting in Kubwa, Abuja, had on Wednesday nullified his hold on the party’s chairmanship and declared his appointment as party Chairman null and void.

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 according to News 24 held that all actions taken by Sheriff are null, void and of no effect since the earlier order of Justice Ashi remains binding.

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

He noted that he was not a party in the suit.

He, however ,said he had already appealed the judgment and filed for a stay of execution of the judgement.
