PDP South-West Exco Drags Makarfi To Court
When PDP was just making its rounds and trying to pick up the pieces, some things may have fallen apart again.
The South-West zonal executive committee has dragged the Caretaker Committee of the party to court.
The exco has filed a suit at the Federal High Court, Abuja, seeking the nullification of the 75th National Executive Committee (NEC) Meeting of the party.
The zonal committee is also seeking a nullification of the adoption of the special non-elective national convention of the party which held last Saturday in Abuja.
The suit marked FHC/ABJ/732/2017 has the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the PDP, National Chairman of the party, Ahmed Makarfi and Ben Obi, Eddy Olafeso, Bunmi Jenyo and the Inspector-General of Police, as defendants.
In the suit filed by Pega Otemolu, Zonal Secretary, the committee also asked the court to nullify the dissolution of the PDP south-west executive committee and the appointment of a zonal executive committee in replacement thereof.
In his suit, Otemolu argued that the PDP deliberately defied the order and judgment of the court in the suit marked FHC/L/CS/605/16, delivered on the May 17, 2016, and June 24, 2016, respectively; and also contravened the terms and purpose of the interim order made on August 10, by the court.
The matter had been adjourned until September 5 for the hearing of all pending applications.
