Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency, Ben Murray-Bruce has said that there is no need for anymore court case in the leadership crisis going on in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Appeal court in Port Harcourt had on Friday nullified the PDP national convention in Port Harcourt that established the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led committee and described the process that led to it as an abuse of the court process. Thus, affirming Senator Ali Modu Sheriff‘s position as the party’s chairman.
Murray-Bruce, in a statement made on Saturday said:
Concerning the PDP, the current bickering is childish and irrelevant. I am not in support of anymore litigation. We will work with Ali Modu Sheriff and go to a convention. Right now, PDP is on a course towards destruction and abiding by the judgement of the court is the only thing that can save us. In the first place, it is never the job of the judiciary to choose the leader of a party.
I therefore call an end to the fighting. And I am supporting Ali Modu Sheriff because it is the only way to preserve the party. Right now, what Nigeria has is a one-party state – there is no opposition. Enough is enough. The is the time for PDP to unite, we are a formidable force!
