ABUJA—Chairman, National Caretaker Committee, NCC, of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has urged those seeking the nullification of the resolutions reached at the recently concluded Non-Elective Special Convention of the party to think of something else because the highest court in the land had already ruled on the powers of the convention.
Makarfi stated this, yesterday, in an exclusive chat with Vanguard on the suit filed by the South-West faction of the PDP seeking, among others, an order to nullify the 75th National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the party and the adoption at the special non-elective National Convention of the party last Saturday.
According to Makarfi, “the Supreme Court has already ruled on powers of the convention; other issues will take their natural course.”
Meanwhile, a chieftain of the party and member, Forum of ex-PDP Ministers, Femi Fani-Kayode, has added his voice to the growing criticisms of the attack on popular musician, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy.
Fani-Kayode took to the social media platform to condemn the violent attack on the musician, stating that in the two years stewardship of President Muhammadu Buhari, respect for human rights had sunk to an abysmal low.
“The Buhari government is a murderous contraption that has no respect for human rights. Charly Boy could have been murdered by Buhari’s foot soldiers today (Tuesday),” the former Minister wrote on his Twitter handle, adding, however, that the murder of Charly Boy could have resulted in a tragedy for the nation and its people.
