More Troubles For PDP As Court Declares Caretaker Committee Illegal
The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), appears to be deepening further as a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has declared the Makarfi-led caretaker committee of the party illegal.
The party had on Saturday dissolved the National Executive Committee led by former Borno State governor, Ali Modu Sheriff and constituted a caretaker committee led by former governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi.
But the court on Tuesday declared as invalid the constituted committee.
Meanwhile as the PDP lurched into another crisis, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday said it would take a position on the PDP leadership tussle only after studying the report of the team it sent to monitor the Port Harcourt convention.
The Deputy Director in charge of Media and Publicity, Mr. Nick Dazang said the commission was aware of the events in the opposition party, but would wait for the report of the monitoring team before making its position known on the Port Harcourt convention.
