Nigeria still has fine judges - Sheriff says after favourable court judgement

Nigeria still has fine judges - Sheriff says after favourable court judgement

Ali Modu Sheriff, factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the ruling that nullified the forthcoming convention of the party is proof that the country still has fine judges.


Okon Abang, a judge of a federal high court in Abuja, had declared the caretaker committee of the PDP as illegal, voiding the convention scheduled for August 17 in Port Harcourt.

Commending the ruling, Sheriff said the order was a demonstration of the existence of some fine judges in Nigeria.

He also called on the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC) to remove the few erring judges who, he said, were ‎tarnishing the image of the judiciary.

‎Sheriff said the ruling serves as a boost to his desire to wipe out impunity, s he prepares to take the PDP to “its original owners at the grass roots level”.

He also disclosed that he would convene an expanded caucus meeting of the PDP, which would comprise the board of trustees, national assembly caucus and state chairmen to chart the next line of action.

However, the caretaker committee had reacted, saying the court ruling was misinterpreted as it did not set aside the Port Harcourt ruling that instituted the committee.
