Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has expressed shock over the supreme court judgment which sacked him from office as the chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
This is as contained in a news report published by the punch newspapers in which he also mentioned he is still waiting for full briefings by his lawyers.
“We received with shock the 12th July judgement of the Supreme Court on the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party.
“Though we still await the full written judgement of the highest court from our lawyers who will fully brief us on the details of the judgement. In the interim, we ask all members and supporters to remain steadfast in prayers for Nigeria.
“Meanwhile, we continue with our avowed demands that the party must be given back to the owners at the grassroots to always elect their party officials and those to contest elections for them at all levels. Internal democracy must be institutionalized in the party.”
The court sacking brings an end to the leadership crisis which had been rocking the party.
