Former Borno State Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff who was sacked by the Supreme Court on Wednesday has stated he is shocked at the Supreme Court judgment that sacked him as Chairman of the party, even as he said he will continue the campaign for internal democracy in the party.
In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Bernard Mikko on Thursday, he said: “We received with shock the 12th July judgment of the Supreme Court on the leadership of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“Though we still await the full written judgment of the highest court from our lawyers who will fully brief us on the details of the judgement; in the interim, we ask all members and supporters to remain steadfast in prayers for Nigeria.
“Meanwhile, we continue with our avowed demands that the party must be given back to the owners at the grassroots to always elect their party officials and those to contest elections for them at all levels. Internal democracy must be institutionalized in the party.”
