PDP Leadership Tussle: Justice Abang Berates Makarfi led PDP

Justice Okon Abang, an Abuja Federal High Court Judge, has berated the Senator Ahmed Makarfi led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for going to the Appeal Court, when the same case was still pending before the High Court.
He said, Thursday, it was wrong for the Makarfi led faction to go to a higher court, while its grieviances had not being heard by the Federal High Court.
At the opening of session on Thursday, Justice Abang said the court would adjourn pending the determination of the notice of appeal in the appellate court.
Abang thus adjourned the case indefinitely.
Former Governor of Bornu State, Ali-Modu Sheriff had approached the court to challenge the decision of the party to appoint his Kaduna State counterpart, Ahmed Makarfi, as Chairman of the Caretaker Committee.
Justice Abang had in a previous ruling decided that the Makarfi led Caretaker Committee was a product of impunity and nullified the convention held in Port Harcourt on May 22.
That convention gave birth to the appointment of the Makarfi led faction of the party’s leadership.
Consequently the faction led by Makarfi approached the Appeal Court to challenge the ruling and to question the jurisdiction of Abang’s court in the matter.
