Sheriff is accusing the Judge of converting “an exparte motion to an interlocutory order”.
In a chat with journalists on Tuesday, Sheriff described the interlocutory order as a ‘hoax’, adding that the interim order granted same day by Justice Okon Abang of the Abuja High Court, which stopped the convention is legally binding on the Makarfi group.
According to him, whatever court action obtained by the Makarfi group is illegal, unacceptable, null and void.
“We are calling on the chief judge of the nation to look into Port Harcourt Division of this judiciary. Otherwise, they will bring anarchy into this country.
“I will not recognise any of these gatherings. I will pursue the Rule of Law until justice is done. This party is for Nigerians. I am ready today, tomorrow if justice will be done, if elections are conducted in Abuja. People are allowed to choose who they want as leaders, I’ll be prepared to hand over to that person. But unless and until we do that I have the right, I have been elected by the NEC for specific period of time. That period will not finish until 2018. But I’m ready to go tomorrow. But let this party not be taken over by one person. We cannot allow it”, he said.
While accusing Liman of corruption, he said the interlocutory order in Port Harcourt has confirmed the fears of President Muhammadu Buhari when he said the judiciary was his ‘main headache’.
Said Sheriff: “We are joining all other Nigerians to call on the Judicial Service Commission to call on the chief justice of the federation and the chief judge of Federal High Court to remove these bad elements in the judiciary, otherwise we will have problem”.
He, however, absolved judges of the Supreme Court and Appeal Court, describing them as ‘first class’ and ‘second to none’. He added: “All the problems of Nigeria are (caused by) few judges in the Federal High Courts
