Barely hours after the Supreme Court ruling that sacked Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, has the National Caretaker Committee of the party under the leadership of Senator Ahmed Makarfi taken over the party’s national secretariat.
The secretariat was until Wednesday morning, occupied by Sheriff and his loyalists.
Members of the party trouped to the erstwhile deserted secretariat which was located at Wuse Zone 5, Abuja.
As soon as the Supreme Court made the pronouncements, drummers and praise singers took over the party secretariat, singing and dancing as politicians in their large number rushed to the secretariat.
Among the early callers were Makarfi and members of his team, Prof. Jerry Gana, Lyel Imoke, Jonah Jang, Chief Femi Fanikayode, Prof. Ahmed Alkali, Chief Raymond Dokpesi among others.
Drummers, trumpeters and singers were also on hand to welcome Makarfi and his team to the party’s erstwhile temporary secretariat located at Wuse zone2.
