Rejection of Sheriff’s motion reaffirms hope in judiciary —Ogun PDP

THE Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the rejection of a stay of execution motion filed by the claimant to the office of the national chairman of the party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, as an affirmation of its faith in the country’s judiciary.

A statement by the state publicity secretary, Mr Malik Ibitoye, quoted the state chairman, Honourable Sikirulahi Ogundele, as commending Justice Valentine Ashi for standing by his judgment against Sheriff and holding the judiciary in high esteem consequently.

Justice Ashi had, in a judgment about two weeks ago, invalidated the 2014 amendment done to the constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) upon which Sheriff is claiming the chairmanship of the party till 2018 and pursuant to which the stay of execution was filed.
