- Court Sheriff sacked Makarfi affirmed as the PDP Caretaker Chairman
The Supreme Court on Wednesday sacked Ali Sheriff as the National Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
The court also declared Ahmed Makarfi, the caretaker committee chairman, as the authentic leader of the PDP, Nigeria’s largest opposition party.
Sheriff sacked Makarfi affirmed as the PDP Caretaker Chairman
Article 47 states the party may remove the National leader after two years.
May is not the same thing as shall, the judge said. A national officer can be removed without a vote of no confidence.
There can be no doubt that the National convention has enormous powers over the party.
