Supreme Court declares Ahmed Markafi Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party

Ahmed Markafi and Ali Modu Sheriff

We all know about the rofo rofo tussle that has been going on in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, between Ali Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Markifi for well over a year now. The situation got so bad to a point where PDP was divided into two factions, with one faction supporting Ali Modu Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State while the second faction supported former Kaduna State governor Ahmed Markafi.

Nigeria's apex court, the Supreme Court finally put the battle to rest today by declaring Markafi the the legitimate chairman of the country's number one opposition Party.

The case which was presided over by Justice Rhodes Vivour saw Sheriff booted out of office and ordered to vacate the seat immediately.

This is a good thing for PDP right? Now they can get their acts together.
