The Supreme Court, on Thursday 4, April 2017 commenced hearing on the objection filed by the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff, against the appeal filed before the court by the Ahmed Makarfi’s faction of the party.

Following the ruling of a Port Harcourt High Court, on February 27, 2017, affirming Sheriff as the party’s National Chairman, the Makarfi’s faction had on March 16 filed an appeal before the apex court contending the ruling.

Sheriff, on March 21 filed an objection to the appeal, praying the Supreme Court to strike out Makarfi’s appeal.
