The apex court in the country, Supreme Court has struck out all the interlocutory appeals filed by the Ali Sheriff faction of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Mr. Modu Sheriff who refused to accept previous rulings continued to parade himself as the genuine chairman of the PDP. However, the appellant court in Abuja yesterday, Wednesday, 23rd of November declared Ahmed Makarfi the authentic PDP leader.
A PDP aspirant in Ondo, Jimoh Ibrahim, had hoped that the Supreme Court would grant the appeals which would have returned him as the candidate of the party for Saturday’s governorship election.
It could be recalled that yesterday Dr Jimoh Ibrahim filed a case against the ruling of the appellate court, which went against him and the party factional chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.
So, this should now be the end of their toiling and desperate moves to overthrow the leadership of PDP and scuttle the Ondo state gubernatorial position.
