     The Governors of Ekiti, Delta and Ebonyi states, Ayodele Fayose Ifeanyi Okowa, and David Umahi have described the Supreme Court judgment affirming Ahmed Makarfi as the authentic chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as victory for democracy and Nigeria.
     The Supreme Court in its Wednesday ruling also sacked Ali Sheriff as the chairman of the party.
     Mr. Fayose, who reacted to the judgment in Abuja said with the victory, the party can now play its role as a vibrant opposition voice.
Mr Fayose through his media aide, Lere layinka, called on ‘genuine members of the party to come together for its repositioning, repackaging and strengthening.’
     He however said all factions must be carried along despite the victory recorded by Mr. Makarfi.
“The ultimate winner is democracy which cannot survive without a virile opposition and the entire people of Nigeria who are already yearning for a return of the PDP, having been short-changed by the APC.”
     Meanwhile Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has equally lauded the ruling.
Reacting to the judgement in Asaba shortly after its delivery, Mr. Okowa in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu, appreciated the Supreme Court for the ruling which he said has put to an end to the protracted leadership crisis that has bedevilled the party.
