INEC Officially Recognizes Makarfi As PDP’s Acting National Chairman



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has recognised Senator Ahmed Makarfi as the Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr. Makarfi and Senator Ali Modu Sheriff are locked in a battle for the chairmanship position of the main opposition party. The duo are currently in court over the leadership crisis rocking the PDP.

However, in a statement issued Tuesday in Abuja by its Deputy Director, Voter Education and Publicity, Nick Dazang, the commission said it ratified the administrative approval granted Makarfi, based on the judgment of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt.

According to Dazang, the ratification was in line with INEC’s Decision Extract, issued on July 14, 2016 and signed by the Director, Commission’s Secretariat, Ishiaku Gali.

He said INEC would recognise the National Caretaker’s activities such as the conduct of primaries of political officers and submission of the plaintiff’s list of the candidate for any election to be conducted by INEC.

“Two weeks ago, the commission received the candidate forwarded to it by the Sen. Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP, which had earlier secured an order from the Port Harcourt High Court”, he added.
