A’ Court verdict: Makarfi’s PDP fumes, says APC wants one-party state

The Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blamed the All Progressives Congress (APC) for its loss of the party’s leadership to Ali Modu Sheriff.

On Friday, the Port Harcourt division of the Appeal court declared Sheriff as the authentic national chairman of the PDP.

But the Makarfi faction has rejected the decision of the court,  vowing to challenge it at the Supreme court.

In a tweet on Friday, the PDP faction alleged that the judgment of the appealate court showed that the APC was out to create a one-party state.

  1. Two out of the 3 man Justices of the Appeal Court gave a scanty judgment in favour of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff while one for Makarfi.

    Nigeria cannot claim to be practising democratic system of government when there is no formidable form of opposition. We are yet to embrace democracy as a nation. We are still practising”Demo” there’s no Cracy yet and until we add cracy which is missing from the concept and eschew the military culture which we have imbibed for so long, we will continue to abuse democracy.
