A FEDERAL High Court sitting in Lagos has nullified the national caretaker committee constituted by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, during last Saturday’s convention. The convention had appointed Senator Ahmed Makarfi, former governor of Kaduna State, as acting chairman, while Senator, Ben Obi, was appointed acting national secretary.
The party said the acting national officers would be in office for three months. In a ruling on Tuesday, May 24, Justice Ibrahim Buba ordered Ali Modu Sheriff, the erstwhile chairman of the party to continue serving as the party’s chairman.
