Court Refuses Application to Stop Atiku’s Faction
A federal high court in Abuja yesterday refused to grant an ex parte application by the Tukur-led PDP to stop the activities of the Baraje’s faction.
Chief Tochukwu Onwubufor (SAN), on behalf of Tukur, had asked the court to restrain Baraje and other executive members of the faction from parading themselves as the national executives of the party.
But Justice Elvis Chukwu in his ruling refused the application and ordered that the respondents be put on notice and that the notice should be served through substituted means.
The court also ordered that the parties should maintain status quo ante pending the determination of the suit.
Justice Chukwu fixed September 12 for the hearing of the motion on notice.
In a reaction to the ruling, Tukur charged members of the party to close ranks and remain committed to its cause.
In a statement he personally signed, Tukur reassured PDP members that the recent developments within the party would neither distract nor dilute the readiness and focus of his leadership to deliver on his mandate.
