JUST IN: Court Orders Uche Secondus To Resume As PDP Chairman

Kebbi State High Court has ordered the return of Uche Secondus as the National Chairman of the PDP.

Gatekeepers News reports that a High Court sitting in Kebbi State presided over by Justice Nusirat Umar has ordered the return of Prince Uche Secondus as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Justice O. Gbasam of the Degema Judicial Division vacation court, sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State had granted an interim injunction restraining Secondus from parading himself as chairman and member of the PDP.

This was sequel to the consideration of an ex parte application in suit No: PHC/2183/CS/2021 filed by Ibeabuchi Alex, Dennis Amadi, Emmanuel Stephen and Umezirike Onucha against Secondus and the PDP.

The development made the party Board of Trustees to ratify the party’s Deputy National Chairman (South), Yemi Akinwonmi, as the Acting National Chairman of the party in line with the party’s constitution.

Justice Umar while giving the order in a suit brought before her in Birinin Kebbi, the state capital in case KB/AC/M. 170/2021, said she was satisfied after reading the affidavit of the respondents that an interim order should be granted on the purported suspension of Secondus pending the determination of the case.

Secondus and the PDP are first and second respondents respectively in the suit brought before the court by three claimants and members of the party: Yahaya Usman, Abubakar Mohammed and Bashar Suleman.

Justice Umar granted, “An order of this Honourable court granting leave to the first respondent (Secondus) to continue exercising all the constitutional powers of the office of Chairman of PDP (second defendant ) as enshrined in both 1999 Constitution of Nigeria as amended and the Peoples Democratic Party’s constitution pending the hearing and final determination of applicant’s motion on notice.”
