National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has accused the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of plot to purchase judgement at the Supreme Court.
Sheriff, however, expressed confidence that the justices would not now bow to those he described as desperate politicians.
Makarfi-led faction had filed a suit at the apex court over the ruling of Port Harcourt division of the Appeal Court that Sheriff is the authentic PDP national chairman.
Addressing newsmen at the PDP national secretariat on behalf of Sheriff, deputy national chairman, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh alleged that the Makarfi group had perfected plans “to do anything in order to secure the judgement in their favour”.
“We make bold to say nobody can buy the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court cannot be bought, and that the party has implicit confidence in the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Samuel Walter Onnoghen and his colleagues in the Supreme Court,” he said.
Meanwhile, Bayelsa State governor and chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Reconciliation Committee, Henry Seriake Dickson, has stated that he never demanded the resignation of Ahmed Makarfi as caretaker chairman of the party.
Dickson explained that during a chat with journalists on the PDP crisis, he only argued that for PDP to bounce back, its leaders must make sacrifices.
