‘Fine’ judges still exist in Nigeria – Sheriff

Factional Chairman of the Peoples
 Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff has commended the Justice
Okon Abang ruling nullifying a Port Harcourt ruling that
recognised the party’s caretaker committee led by Amen Makarfi.
Sheriff, a former governor of Borno state told newsmen in Abuja on Friday that he got an
order stopping the party’s national convention in Port
Harcourt on Aug. 17.

Sheriff said the order issued by
Justice Abang was a demonstration of the existence of
some fine judges in Nigeria.
He also called on the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC) to
remove the few erring judges who, he said,
were tarnishing the image of the judiciary.
Sheriff said the ruling of the court had boosted his
desire to wipe out impunity even as he announced his
readiness to take the PDP to its original owners at the
grass roots level.

Sheriff also disclosed that he would convene an
expanded caucus meeting of the PDP which he said
would comprise the Board of Trustees, National
Assembly Caucus and state chairmen to
chart the next line of action.
