(Go Down)
The Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has described the ruling of the Appeal Court on the leadership tussle rocking the party which favoured the Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction as a “disgrace to Nigerian democracy,” adding that it will appeal the judgement immediately at the Supreme Court.

The faction’s position was disclosed by its spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, while briefing journalists in Port-Harcourt immediately after the ruling.

He alleged that two out of the three Justices that delivered the judgement read a script written by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) neglecting to consider all the issues relevant to the case.

Adeyeye said: “We are disappointed with the Appeal Court Judgement. The lead judgement is very wrong. The issues were not considered. It is a disgrace not only to PDP but to Nigerian Democracy as a whole. It is a miscarriage of justice.

“Two out of the 3 man Justices of the Appeal Court gave a scanty judgment in favour of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff while one for Makarfi. The one that spoke in favour of Makarfi considered all the issues. She was thorough. In fact, it took the Justice three times the total time it took the other two Justices to deliver their judgement.

“The Judgment has finally shown that the ruling Party, the APC is out to create a one party state in the country.

“Certainly, we are proceeding immediately to the Supreme Court to file an appeal against the ruling of today’s appeal court judgment.”
