PDP leadership tussle: Court adjourns hearing

Ali Modu Sheriff Vs Makarfi 2

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday adjourned hearing in a suit on the leadership tussle within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

A governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff, had approached the court to challenge the decision of the party to appoint Ahmed Makarfi, a former governor of Kaduna State, as chairman of the caretaker committee.

Justice Okon Abang, who presided over the matter, had in a previous ruling decided that the Makarfi-led caretaker committee was a product of impunity and nullified the convention that produced the caretaker committee.

The faction led by Mr. Makarfi appealed the ruling and questioned the jurisdiction of Mr. Abang’s court in the matter.

At the opening of session on Thursday, Mr. Abang said the court would adjourn pending the determination of the appeal in the appellate court.

He however blasted the Makarfi-led faction for going to a higher court, while its grievances had not been heard by the Federal High Court.
