Dissatisfied with the three-month grace for the new National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Modu Ali Sheriff, some members of the PDP Ministers Forum may go to court to seek an injunction restraining him from leading the party. They described Sheriff’s election and ratification by the National Executive Committee as illegal. Also, the ex-ministers have asked Sheriff to step down latest by March 28.
It was learnt that some of the ex-ministers opted for court action following the refusal of some organs of the party to limit Sheriff’s mandate to the completion of the tenure of ex-National Chairman Adamu Mu’azu. A source in the forum said: “We have weighed all options. Some of our members have decided to go to court to seek an injunction because the process leading to his nomination and selection was illegal.”
