Court declares PDP caretaker committee illegal
A Federal High Court in Lagos has declared as invalid the caretaker committee constituted over the weekend to take over the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from its acting National Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.
Justice Ibrahim Buba in his ruling on Tuesday ordered the Inspector General of Police to ensure that the members of the committee do not take over the Party’s national headquarters.
PDP had on Saturday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, sacked Sheriff and constituted a caretaker committee headed by a former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi during its National Convention.
