The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Friday affirmed a former Governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff, as the authentic Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The court set aside the judgement delivered by Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court in Rivers State who recognized former Kaduna State governor, Ahmed Makarfi as the leader of the party.

Messrs. Sheriff and Makarfi lead separate factions of the PDP, Nigeria’s major opposition party.

The ruling came as a split decision that saw two of three judges rule in favour of Sheriff while the other judge delivered judgement against the former Borno State governor.
