PDP fixes October for National Convention as Sheriff surrenders

In the statement, titled "Re: PDP Unveils Plans To Sack APC", the ruling party said the PDP's failure over their 16-year reign was responsible for the APC's success and condemned the party for always mocking President Buhari's health situation.

The governor said it was his intention to carry out the act within the court premises.

Makarfi, who described the last 14 months as very worrisome for the party, however, said there was no need punishing those who made the party to experience the setback.

In a short statement posted on Sheriff's twitter handle, the former Borno State governor said: "The Supreme Court has spoken. Whoever that participated in this charade must show some reasonable level of remorse for his actions".

Declaring Makarfi as the authentic Chairman of the PDP, the apex court, in its unanimous decision read by Justice Bode Rhodes Vivour, held that contrary to the majority verdict of the Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, the suit filed by Makarfi's committee before the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt was not an abuse of court process.

Speaking to newsmen in Abuja at the weekend, he noted that the crisis that the party went through was unprecedented, noting that the legal and moral victory achieved by the court judgement must now be complemented by political victory.

"Without such support, genuine reconciliation can not take place; without such support, the Caretaker Committee will have a herculean task organizing an acceptable convention, without genuine reconciliation, the party can not move forward". "Without such support, genuine reconciliation can not take place; without such support, the Caretaker Committee will have a herculean task organizing an acceptable convention, without genuine reconciliation, the party can not move forward". We urge Nigerians to Google the names of these individuals and see what comes up. "We are awaiting the written judgment and wait for the advise of our lawyers", he said.
