Sacked National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has said that he is still in shock over the judgment of the Supreme Court which removed him from office on Wednesday, Punch has reported. According to Sheriff, he is still waiting for his lawyers to brief him on the details of the judgment. His reaction was conveyed by his erstwhile deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh and the former Spokesperson for his faction, Mr. Bernard Mikko, in Abuja on Thursday. Mikko, who signed the statement said Nigerians should continue to pray for the country.
 The three-paragraph statement said, “We received with shock the 12th July judgement of the Supreme Court on the leadership of the Peoples  Democratic Party. “Though we still await the full written judgement of the highest court from our lawyers who will fully brief us on the details of the judgement. In the interim, we ask all members and supporters to remain steadfast in prayers for Nigeria. “Meanwhile, we continue with our avowed demands that the party must be given back to the owners at the grassroots to always elect their party officials and those to contest elections for them at all levels. Internal democracy must be institutionalized in the party.”
 Sheriff was removed by a five-man panel of justices of the Supreme Court and installed the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee as the authentic leader of the former ruling party. His sacking ended the 18-month leadership crisis in the party.

You should not be in shock.Just gather your broken pieces and support Markarfi.If not you might be left hopelessly behind in their scheme of things for being factional and rebellious. Quite hopeless. Rebelliously hopeless.
