The PDP Caretaker Committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi has been embroiled in a legal tussle in the last 13 months with Senator Sheriff over who to manage the affairs of the party.

"Our attention has been drawn to a fake congratulatory message credited to an imaginary Twitter handle of Sen (Dr) Ali Modu Sheriff, the immediate past PDP National Chairman".

He described Sheriff as "a monumental distraction, who created a painful and agonising period for the party" and advised him and his supporters to desist from committing fresh offence.

The Supreme Court also ordered Sheriff to vacate the National Secretariat of the party.
