I am the authentic PDP chairman-Sheriff

Former Borno State governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has declared that the proclamation of the national convention of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was a nullity following a court order on the matter earlier.
Sheriff, accompanied by loyalists, stormed Wadata Plaza to assume office as the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He was initially locked out of the secretariat of the party by a detachment of the Nigeria Police who blocked him and later cordoned off the secretariat for the second time in two weeks.
But, he was later allowed to enter the premises, following the intervention of police headquarters. In his company were two members of the dissolved national working committee, Professor Wale Oladipo and Alhaji Adewole Adeyanju, erstwhile national secretary and national auditor, respectively, PDP chieftain from Anambra state, Chris Uba and former Special Adviser to Obasanjo on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak.
Senator Ahmed Makarfi had formally assumed office as chairman of the caretaker committee, last Tuesday, after a peace deal brokered by the Board of Trustees (BoT) between his panel, which was proclaimed by the national convention of the party, in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State and Concerned PDP Stakeholders under the leadership of former deputy Senate President, Ibrahim Mantu and former education minister, Professor Tunde Adeniran. The latter group, which had earlier conducted what it called a non-elective national convention in Abuja has since pledged loyalty to the Makarfi committee.
Addressing newsmen outside the party secretariat, Sheriff restated his earlier stance that by the declaratory judgment of Justice Hussein Buba of the Federal High Court in Lagos, he remains the authentic national chairman of the party.
