The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP, National Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, has accused the Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction of the party of plotting to turn Nigeria into a one-party state under the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Speaking with newsmen in Kaduna on Saturday, he held that Sherrif’s intention was to first discredit the judiciary and later ensure that Nigeria is turned into one-party state.
Makarfi further accused Sherrif of deliberately raising insinuations that could affect the judgment pending before the Appeal Court in Port Harcourt and also discrediting the judiciary.
According to him, “We as caretaker committee of the PDP we have absolute faith and confidence in the judiciary and we know that ultimately justice will be done, the judges cannot be fooled by these antics.
“We equally believe that as democrats in PDP we will continue to depend on the judiciary as the institution that can protect its own integrity and I believe that they are capable of doing that.”
