Supreme Court At Long Last Ready To Begins Hearing On PDP Leadership Conflicts

At long last supreme court today started hearing on the initiative tussle in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The intercession of the apex court took after an interest documented
by Ali Modu Sheriff, whom a government high court had pronounced as the credible chairman of the party, against a suit filed by the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction, challenging the decision of the lower court.

The PDP has been locked in a leadership battle since 2015. 

In February, a federal high court in Port Harcourt endorsed the leadership of Sheriff, but Makarfi and some members of the PDP have refused to recognise him as national chairman.

They then filed an appeal at the apex court, seeking an overturning of the unfavourable judgment.

Recall that former President Goodluck Jonathan had intervened to find a political solution to the impasse, but his peace effort didn't succeed.

The supreme court is now expected to determine the issue, and draw the curtain on the leadership tussle that is entering its third year.
