Court Sacks Sheriff As PDP Chairman

An Abuja High Court sitting sitting in Apo on Wednesday sacked the Chairman of the PDP. The court, in a judgment by Justice Valantine Ashi, declared as “unconstitutional, null and void”, purported amendment of Article 47 Rule 6 of PDP Constitution, 2012, at a special National Convention the party held on Wednesday and Thursday, December 10 and 11, 2014.
The judge voided the said amendment on the basis that there was no compliance with mandatory provisions of Article 66 (2) and (3) of the PDP constitution. “By reason of the above, the purported amendments introduced to the constitution on the aforesaid dates, are hereby set-aside. 







“All persons, individuals, servants or agents of PDP parading themselves as national officers of the PDP pursuant to the purported amendment which has now been nullified are hereby restrained from further parading themselves in these capacities."
Funny enough, even PDP as a party is not happy with the judgement. The lawyer who represented PDP in court, Mr. Okere Kingdom, said the party would appeal against the judgement, insisting that the court had no power to meddle into the domestic affair of a political party.
With this judgement, is Sheriff going? We'll soon find out.
