The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the Supreme Court ruling which affirmed former Kaduna State Governor, Ahmed Makarfi as the leader of the party.
In a terse statement which was backed with photographs of its Chieftains in the courtroom of the Supreme Court on its twitter handle, the PDP said, “democracy has been restored.”
“Breaking News! Democracy is restored. The Supreme Court has declared Makarfi winner and the National Caretaker Committee as authentic,” the party said.
Recall that the apex court had earlier put an end to the lingering leadership crisis rocking the opposition party.
In a landmark judgment, the apex court held that Markafi remains the authentic National Chairman of PDP and consequently sacked Sheriff.
The Supreme Court also ordered Sheriff to vacate the National Secretariat of the party.
PDP has been experiencing leadership crisis since it lost the 2015 presidential election.
The crisis, however, heightened earlier in the year when an Appeal Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State affirmed Sheriff as the National Chairman of the party while sacking the Makarfi’s Caretaker Committee.
