Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the deputy senate president, Friday has assured members and supporers of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that there is nothing to worry about over the ruling of the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt, Rivers state on the leadership tussle in the party.
The Nation reports that Ekweremadu said this in his reaction to the court judgment that declared Ali Modu Shariff authentic chairman of the PDP on Friday afternoon.
This was contained in a statement by the Special Adviser (media) to the Deputy Senate President, Uche Anichukwu.
Ekweremadu said, “There is no cause for alarm. The party leadership will meet as soon as possible to take a decision on the best way forward.

“I enjoin party faithful to remain steadfast as we will surely emerge stronger from the present challenges. Those dreaming about the death of the opposition in Nigeria will have to sleep much longer, and still wake up to meet us much stronger because a vibrant opposition is the beauty of democracy”.
One of those that have reacted is top PDP stalwart and former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode.
Fani-Kayode said the decision of the Court of Appeal to recognise Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman of the PDP is a victory for President Buhari.
