Break Away Faction of PDP Seeks Court Order Retraining Jonathan-Tukur’s Group
The Atiku Abubakar inspired faction of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) led by Alhaji Abdullahi Kawu Baraje which has approached the Ikeja Division of the High Court of Lagos State seeking to stop Bamnaga Tukur and other members of his leadership from parading themselves as the members of the National Executive of the People’s Democratic Party.
The Suit filed by the ‘New Party’ Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Kawu Baraje, Dr. Sam Sam Jaja, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and the PDP also sought a motion exparte asking for leave to serve the defendants outside jurisdiction – Bamanga Tukur purported chairman, Uche Secondus, purported Deputy Chairman, Kema Chikwe, purported woman leader and Olisah Metuh purported Publicity Secretary, (the defendants)
In its ruling, the court granted the plaintiffs leave to serve the defendants in their various locations, but with regards to the matter of their illegality as members of the National Executive Committee of the party, the court said that there is no urgency as to the fact of who should hold what office and now directed that the status quo should be maintained while asking all parties to come back on Monday September 9th to argue the motion on notice.
What this means is that in the meantime that both executive committees are to remain until the court resolves the matter.
