The Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt on Friday affirmed former governor of Borno state, Ali Modu Sheriff, has the authentic national chairman of the party.
It was gathered that two of the three judges of the court ruled that Modu Sheriff is the legitimate chairman of the PDP. The third judge recognised Markafi as the authentic chairman of the party.
Senators Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff have tested their legal muscles through various litigations in many courts in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt, with each getting favourable orders and directives with the attendant effect on stability in the party.
Chieftains of the party from the two sides had at various fora expressed readiness to abide by the outcome of the appeal court verdict with a view to bringing lasting peace in the party.
