Court Sacks Modu Sheriff as PDP Chairman

Ali-Modu-SheriffA High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja on Wednesday sacked Ali Modu Sheriff as Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Justice Valentine Ashi ‎held that Sheriff’s ascension to office was unlawful as it was based on amended provision of the PDP ‎Constitution said to be illegally introduced in December 2014.

‎Though the court did not specifically mention Sheriff’s name, it made an order restraining all persons who became national officers of the party by virtue of the amended Article 47, Rule 6 of the party’s constitution, from further parading themselves in the said capacities.

The judge nullified the amendment of the said provision which he ruled was done in violation of mandatory provisions of Article 66 (2) and (3) of the party’s constitution.
