National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who briefed the press, described the leadership crisis in the party as a “monumental distraction” while it lasted and a “painful and agonizing period.”

He said the Supreme Court ruling effectively dissolved the party leadership under Sheriff, noting that the convention in Port-Harcourt held in accordance with the laws and constitution of the PDP.

He said: “We are granting amnesty to all of them including Sheriff and his group. It is general amnesty for everyone.”

Adeyeye who lamented the hardship Nigerians have been subjected to in the past two years, added that come 2019, the PDP will stage a comeback.

“APC is the worst we have ever seen in the history of this country. The election in 2019 will be a walkover for the PDP,” he added.

Meanwhile, the delegitimised Senator Ali Modu Sheriff-led leadership of the PDP has expressed shock at the Supreme Court judgment that sacked it but vowed to continue with its campaign for internal democracy in the party.

The leadership, which was sacked by the Supreme Court, Wednesday, in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Bernard Mikko, yesterday, said:  “We received with shock the July 12 judgment of the Supreme Court on the leadership of Peoples  Democratic Party (PDP).
