Factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff yesterday accused the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee of a plot to purchase judgement at the Supreme Court.
But the Makarfi group has described the allegation as a cheap blackmail meant to tarnish the image of the Supreme Court and the committee.
The appeal court, PortHarcourt division has delivered a judgement upholding Sheriff as the authentic national chairman of the party, but the Makarfi group has appealed at the apex court.
Addressing newsmen yesterday at the PDP national secretariat on behalf of Sheriff, the deputy national chairman, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, alleged that the Makarfi group had perfected plans to do anything in order to secure the judgement in their favour.
“It is worthy of note today (yesterday) that the same groups of impunity peddlers have now resorted to boasting that they are in control of the Supreme Court and that the judgement rejected by the Court of Appeal will be adopted by the Supreme Court.
“This same judgment that they paraded as the Court of Appeal judgement is what they have now claimed that the Supreme Court will uphold for them,” he said.
