Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has declared that the Supreme Court will surely sack the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Alli Modu Sheriff.
Governor Okowa expressed confidence that the Apex Court will finally sack Sheriff after he was declared the authentic National Chairman of the party by an Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, last weekend.
He is also hopeful that Senator Ahmed Makarfi will be installed as the authentic Chairman of the party.
Okowa spoke while addressing stakeholders of the party at Delta Central PDP in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state yesterday.
He said, “Because, we are committed to the PDP, we will not get it wrong, all the elections from the ward to the zonal levels were accepted.
“The problem we have in PDP is the convention we had in Port Harcourt, which some people are currently challenging, but, it is our hope that we will get fair hearing at the Supreme Court, because, they will be setting a precedence.
“It is good that we are strong in Delta Central; we are strong in the state and the PDP is still very strong nationally, which was attested to by the large turnout of party leaders at the recent meeting of the party in Abuja despite the short notice.
“We will continue to grow strong; it is going to be a clean sweep in 2019, but, we must not rest on our oars. We must ensure total reconciliation in the party.”
