The National Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ali Modu-Sheriff, has concluded plans to dump the party for good.
Sheriff according to sources, has remained indoors, and in a state of silence, since the Supreme Court gave him a major KO, yesterday.
Sheriff’s decision to leave the party, was based solely on the decision of the Supreme Court, that confirmed Ahmed Makarfi, as the geniune & authentic Chairman of the PDP.
“Sheriff has begun making consultation to dump the PDP. He can no longer endure the shame that he has brought upon himself”, a top PDP source said.
The source added: “What I don’t know, is the party he is planning to decamp to. As I speak, consultation is going on.”
Moreover, there was an all night massive celebration by many residents of Maiduguri, the home town of Sheriff.
At the popular ‘Monday Market’, many of the Traders who were apparently happy with the decision of the Supreme Court, gathered in groups, discussing the verdict.
One of the Traders who spoke, said: “It is a decision we have been expecting for so long, and definitely, most people in the State are happy”. Sheriff’s supporters have been threatening that the Government House would be their own, by 2019.
