I’m in shock over Supreme Court judgement – Sheriff | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Sacked National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has said that he is still in shock over the judgment of the Supreme Court which removed him from office on Wednesday.

Sheriff said he was still waiting for his lawyers to brief him on the details of the judgment.

His reaction was sent to our correspondent by his erstwhile deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh and the former Spokesperson for his faction, Mr. Bernard Mikko, in Abuja on Thursday.

Mikko, who signed the statement said Nigerians should continue to pray for the country.

The three-paragraph statement said, “We received with shock the 12th July judgement of the Supreme Court on the leadership of the Peoples  Democratic Party.

“Though we still await the full written judgement of the highest court from our lawyers who will fully brief us on the details of the judgement. 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.”

Sheriff was removed by a five-man panel of justices of the Supreme Court and installed the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee as the authentic leader of the former ruling party.

His sacking ended the 18-month leadership crisis in the party.

  2. You're in shock because your oga at the top who influences court judgement against justice, is still in London. Shame!

    1. Stupid and moronic comment comment by a deluded mind. How has this government influenced any judgment that has to do with your demonic PDP. Oh, I remember, it was PMB that asked lunatic Fayose to invite Sherriff to lead the party. Fools

    2. Very senseless comment. PDP is evil and evil is dead. PDP was buried in Kano at the eve of 2015. The North formed PDP and are tired of it hence the death. No southern formed party can win presidency of this country because democracy is a game of number.

  3. I am in the same page with you both anonymous. They are just making noises but they are not going anywhere the most corrupt political party ever in the history of Nigeria.

  4. A game of number indeed. Numbers that come from cattle head count!!!
