Former PDP National Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, on Thursday, disclosed the next step he would take, whilst insisting that he would continue to demand the return of the party to its owners at the grassroots level.
He also stated that he would make demands that would ensure that those who own the party at the grassroots level should have the power to elect their party officials as well as those who would represent them in elections at all levels
The recently sacked PDP National Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, made these remarks through his former spokesperson, Bernard Mikko. He also stated that he was shocked by the ruling of the Supreme Court which ousted him from his leadership position
The Supreme Court on Wednesday approved former Kaduna State Governor, Ahmed Makarfi as the new National Chairman of the Party. His three-paragraph statement which was released in Abuja stated that he was awaiting briefings from his lawyers on how such rulings were conducted.
The statement reads, “We received with shock the 12th July judgment of the Supreme Court on the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party.
“Though we still await the full written judgment of the highest court from our lawyers who will fully brief us on the details of the judgment. In the interim, we ask all members and supporters to remain steadfast in prayers for Nigeria.
“Meanwhile, we continue with our avowed demands that the party must be given back to the owners at the grassroots to always elect their party officials and those to contest elections for them at all levels. Internal democracy must be institutionalized in the party.”
