A Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti has sacked the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of Ekiti state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) State Working Committee.

The court sacked the faction led by Barr. Gboyega  Oguntuase, which currently enjoys the backing and support of Governor Ayodele Fayose.

According to a report by Leadership Newspaper, the court ruled that the Williams Ajayi –led faction remains the authentic chairman of the party in the state.

Ajayi's faction is allegedly being bankrolled by Ogun Senator and PDP power broker, Buruji Kashamu.

The ruling was delivered against the request of Oguntuase and other respondents to appoint Mike Ozekhome as their lead counsel.

Reacting to the judgement, Oguntuase said: “We will appeal the judgment. I plead with all the PDP members in the state to remain calm. In that judgement, I saw humour and I didn’t see honour and candour.

“How will you call yourself a Chairman when the governor is not behind you, when all the National Assembly members and state assembly lawmakers are not behind  you? So, this is not the last court”, he said.
