Infuriated at the Appeal Court judgement, which pronounced the former Borno Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic national Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, a former aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Koyde has said the time is up to set the party ablaze and forgo it carcass for the victorious former factional chairman, turned authentic.
The former Presidential campaign spokesperson in a series of tweet on his twitter handle wrote: “The C of A decision is absurd. It is time for us to gut the PDP, leave its carcass for the treacherous mole called Sheriff and form a new party.”
Fani-Kayode, who dropped the hint while reacting to the Appeal Court’s earlier ruling affirming Sheriff as PDP Chairman, has earlier described the ruling as victory for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The decision by the Court of Appeal in PH to recognise Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the Nat. Chairman of the PDP is a victory for @MBuhari.
The C of A decision is absurd.Its time for us to gut the PDP,leave its carcass for the treacherous mole called Sheriff and form a new party.
First we will appeal the C of A ruling to the Supreme Court. Then on monday we will have a PDP caucus meeting and decide what to do next.
Recall that the Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State had earlier today ruled in favour of the former Borno State Governor.
A three-man panel of judges in a unanimous decision agreed that the former Borno State Governor is the authentic National Chairman of the party.
Following the ruling, the Makarfi’s faction of the former ruling party disclosed that it would be heading for the Supreme court to contest the judgement.
