“We want to make sure that impunity is sacked. The idea of opposition in the party which has been the bane of our party is removed. That is what our national leader, Ali-Modu Sheriff stood for and that is what he still stands for.”
The meeting follows last week’s judgement which brought an end to the leadership tussle that has rocked the party for almost two years.
The 3-man Supreme Court panel led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour in the judgement ruled that Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff ceases to be the party’s national chairman and ordered Ahmed Makarfi to take over the leadership of the party.
While the verdict came to some as a shock, others say Nigeria will now have a viable opposition.
