The Supreme Court has struck out all the interlocutory appeals filed by the Ali Sheriff faction of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Mr. Sheriff insists he is the authentic chairman of the PDP. However, a Court of Appeal in Abuja on Wednesday declared Ahmed Makarfi the authentic PDP leader.

A PDP aspirant in Ondo, Jimoh Ibrahim, had hoped that the Supreme Court would grant the appeals which would have returned him as the candidate of the party for Saturday’s governorship election.

Mr. Ibrahim was chosen as PDP candidate by the Ali Sheriff faction.

Eyitayo Jegede of the Ahmed Makarfi faction was declared authentic PDP candidate by the Appeal Court on Wednesday.

    This is what judicial corruption has caused in Nigeria.

      Sorry,Buhari can not always have his way.

      Time for PDP to RE-organise and send Buhari home in 2019.

      • Babso

        Is Buhari joined in the legal tussle between the two PDP factions? Leave PMB alone and let PDP sort out their problems.

        • Daniel

          Do no play the ostrich here.

          Else I will call you politically naive.

          Who benefits, if Jegede loses?

          Yeye dey smell.

          Paranoia! See a doctor .

    Sherif a Kanuri man fighting a foolani in the open. Though Sherif is playing the devils advocate, yet Makarfi may have reached out to his brothers. After all, Buhari only wanted him to do the dirty job and get dumped. That dirty job has been done and sherif is no more useful.
    With INEC sworn to execute the last leg of the rigging game, sherif can go to hell. INEC would rather err on the side of convenience than obey the laws of the land.
    “We have taken 13 steps out of the 14 leading to the election, as such we must go ahead with the election” That sound like a comment from a drunkard.

  • Dazmillion

    This is the problem with corruption. Nobody knows which court judgments are genuine anymore.

    • el Matty

      Supreme court is the genuine one and the last one

    • asuevie

      At least supreme court judgement is genuine. Badbye Ali Modu Sheriff

    • emmanuel

      You sure know. PDP gave Sherif a period to stay in power. When that period elapse, he steps down and it is automatic. The party appoint a caretaker and move on.
      How then can an interim appointee constitute himself as the power? Sherif is fraud, Abang a disgrace and you a sadist who find fulfilment is falsehood

    • princegab

      Na clash of bribery

  • el Matty

    Oga Jimoh na the last bus stop bi dis. Supreme Court don nack you apako

  • ijelejames

    Are these people sane at all? May God deliver Nigeria from these heartless individuals.

  • thusspokez

    One hopes that the ‘Balloon-face’ Ali Sheriff would now leave the PDP alone to start on its road to becoming an effective opposition.

  • Moses Musa

    Same set of looters with different platforms.

  • Uwaoma, Chigozie

    Ali Modu Sheriff has been disgraced after being used by Buhari and Co. I hope PDP will now give Buhari and Co a run for their money…
    As for the ONDO gubernatorial election, INEC has just confirmed that they have rigged it…

    • Audu Dakas

      See how you reason! You expected the “business as usual” of your previous corrupt GEJ to continue, abi? Where judgement must be in favour of the government in power, abi?

      • Uwaoma, Chigozie

        Audu Dakas, it’s important to note that you may need to go take your pills now…
        It is obvious that you are not sane. I pray you understand what I have written this time…

  • Iskacountryman

    never you raid judges…they just might sit up and tell you the truth…

    • Audu Dakas

      Yes! Is that not what they’re employed to do? See how you reason! So because APC government raided corrupt judges, the judgment shouldn’t have been fair?

      • Iskacountryman

        raided corrupt judges?…so you have absolved okon abang of hanky panky…

    • Man_Enough

      In other words, “leave judges alone so that they can continue to lie as usual”

      • Iskacountryman

        judges do not lie…they sit…

  • princegab

    APC all the way

    • mbewalu ogodo

      Hunger follow u.

  • Case closed. Sheriff Modi should be expelled and banished from pdp.

  • Gabriel Olasebikan

    Last blow…..Sherif is gone,credible opposition on the leash.
    He who asked judges into the ring for a fight will soon surrender.

      Buhari is not going anywhere, he’s going to deal with all of you with biblical famine. Next time you think before voting an empty vessel into Aso Rock. Happy recession!
