A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt on Monday upheld the removal of Senator Modu Sheriff as the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party.
An Abuja High Court had earlier in June sacked the factional chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff, from office.
It voided the said amendment on the basis that there was no compliance with mandatory provisions of Article 66 (2) and (3) of the PDP constitution. “By reason of the above, the purported amendments introduced to the constitution on the aforesaid dates, are hereby set-aside. “All persons, individuals, servants or agents of PDP parading themselves as national officers of the PDP pursuant to the purported amendment which has now been nullified are hereby restrained from further parading themselves in these capacities,’’ Justice Ashi held.
