The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt today ruled that the caretaker committee headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi is illegal and cannot act on behalf of the People’s Democratic Party.
Two of the Judges in a three-man panel ruled in favour of the Ali-Modu Sheriff faction.
The court nullified the preliminary objection raised by Justice Liman and the judgement was set aside.
The Ali-Modu Sheriff faction, was dissolved by some leaders of the party at a national convention held in Port Harcourt in 2016.
It was the outcome of the convention that led to the intense legal battle.
The party has been thrown into series of court cases in several courts in the country raising concerns over the possibility of two factions.
