Rivers State chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Felix Obuah has described the judgment of the Supreme Court which conferred legitimacy on the Senator Ahmed Markafi-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the party as heartwarming and a step in the right direction.
Obuah in a statement in Port Harcourt called on members of the party to work for the unity, peace and corporate existence of the party, using the judgment of the Supreme Court as an instrument of strength.
He said the judgment which has formally sacked Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the National Chairman of the PDP has ushered the party into a new dawn, stressing the PDP will benefit more as a united party.
Obuah who cautioned against utterances capable of threatening the peace and unity of the party, said this is particularly because the PDP remains the cynosure of hope, following the failure of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to meet the expectation of Nigerians.
According to the Rivers PDP Chairman, “We should be able to live together in peace and harmony; and must all be advocates of genuine peace”.
He went on, “I whole heartedly celebrate with the Senator Ahmed Markafi-led National Working Committee (NWC) on the victory at the Supreme Court. I also salute the apex court for its dispassionate judgment”.
The judgment, according to Bro. Obuah has brought to an end a protracted leadership crisis that rocked the party.
The Rivers PDP Chairman also congratulated Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for standing firm in his quest for a united, peaceful and progressive PDP ahead of the 2019 General Election.
Obuah appealed to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to join hands with Senator Ahmed Markafi to move the PDP forward, adding that the party now remains the only platform to enthrone genuine change for Nigerians.
