The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it is waiting for the Appeal Court to decide which faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should be recognized.

One faction is being led by former Kaduna State Governor, Ahmed Makarfi while the other is under the control of former PDP Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.

“INEC is yet to take a decision on that even though I learnt Alhaji Modu Sheriff has written the Commission to say that he intends to hold one (primary)," INEC Deputy Director of Public Affairs, Nick Dazang told Vanguard on Sunday, June 26, 2016.

“Even though INEC monitored the recent PDP primaries, it is awaiting the judgement of the Appeal Court scheduled for 4th July. The judgement will determine which faction the Commission will recognize,” he added.

The PDP has been suffering a leadership crisis since Sheriff was removed on May 21.
