Speaking with reporters on Thursday in Abuja, the former Borno State governor maintained that he remains the party’s Chairman until the Port Harcourt division of Appeal Court says otherwise.
The Abuja division of the court had yesterday affirmed the Sen. Ahmed Makrfi-led committee while describing the Sheriff’s faction of the PDP as illegal.
Reacting to the ruling, Sheriff said, “I’m surprised at some of the reporting you media people are carrying, the issue in the lower court, is the issue of governorship of Ondo state.
“That issue is between the state chairmen and the chairmen of the other group, the court of appeal has not touched anything on who is the leader or who is the substantive national chairman of the PDP which is the issue in the court of appeal. The Supreme Court says the court of appeal is to hear that matter.
On the plans of the party to reconcile, Sheriff said, “We will reconcile, the thing is that being in court does not stop the parties from talking. PDP is one.”
